Cairo: A judge presiding over the retrial of former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak along with his former interior minister has withdrawn from the case, Al-Jazeera reported.

Judge Moustafa Hassan Abdullah announced his decision on Saturday at the start of the retrial at a police academy on the outskirts of Cairo, where the 84-year old former president had earlier been flown in by a helicopter.

Al Jazeera's Anita MacNaught, reporting from Cairo, quoted Abdullah as saying he did not wish to embarrass himself.

Mubarak, his former interior minister, Habib al-Adly, and ex-security chiefs are accused of complicity in the murder of protesters during the uprising that unseated him in 2011.

Television footage showed Mubarak, dressed in white and wearing sunglasses, wheeled out of an ambulance on a stretcher on Saturday and taken into Cairo's Police Academy where the trial is being held.
