Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak denied all charges against him Wednesday. The ousted leader was wheeled into court on a hospital bed for the opening of his trial on charges of corruption and the unlawful killing of protesters. He’ll remain in bed—and behind a wire cage—throughout the trial, according to the Associated Press. It was his first public appearance since he was deposed on Feb. 11, and a raucous crowd of protesters greeted him outside the court building. He was flown to Cairo on Wednesday from the Red Sea resort of Sharm al-Sheikh, where he’s been living since losing power. His trial will be aired on Egyptian state TV.
