Head of Cairo's Criminal Court Judge Mahmoud Kamel al-Rashidi allowed the Egyptian state television to air former president Hosni Mubarak's retrial proceedings on Saturday.

Rashidi agreed to provide permits to 44 Egyptian, Arabic and international media outlets to cover the trial's proceeding, the state-owned news agency MENA reported on Thursday.

Mubarak and his interior minister Habib al-Adli will be retried for killing protesters during the January 2011 uprising.

The retrial was adjourned after the court's former presiding judge withdrew from the case and a new panel was assigned to hear it.
