The Cairo appellate court has set May 11 for the resumption of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's retrial over the deaths of hundreds of protesters killed during the uprising that ousted him.

Mubarak remains in custody on new corruption charges, although earlier this week a court ordered him released before the retrial resumes next month. The new date was set after the judge in the case recused himself at the start of the retrial on Saturday.

In January, an appeals court overturned a life sentence for the 84-year-old Mubarak on a conviction for failing to prevent the killing of 900 protesters during the 180-day uprising in 2011.
