A retrial of former president Hosni Mubarak, jailed for life for his role in the deaths of protesters in 2011, is to open on April 13, Egypt's official MENA news agency reported on Sunday.

Mubarak, former interior minister Habib al-Adly and six top security chiefs will be retried on orders of the Court of Cassation, Egypt's top appeals court, over the hundreds of killings during the 2011 uprising which ousted him from power.

The court agreed in January on a retrial for Mubarak, 84, who appealed against his life sentence for involvement in the deaths.
