Mubarak`s verdict to be beamed live
Cairo: The long-awaited verdict on ousted Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak and his sons on Saturday would be broadcast live to the world, with the state television offering the rights at hefty fees.
The Egyptian television is offering foreign media live coverage for USD 7,000 to USD 10,000, Al Ahram reported quoting the head of Egyptian radio and television.
Mubarak, along with former interior minister Habib El-Adly and six of the latter`s assistants, are accused of instructing subordinates to fire on unarmed protesters during the 18 days of Egypt`s revolution.
The ousted president, along with his two sons and runaway businessman Hussein Salem, also faces a host of corruption charges.
