Report: Mubarak Refused to Sign Court Document

An Egyptian newspaper said Monday that former President Hosni Mubarak, who has been in a Sharm el-Sheikh hospital for the past few months, refused to sign an order agreeing to come to court. He changed his mind and signed the form after meeting with his lawyers, the report said.

Mubarak's trial is set to open Wednesday. He, along with two of his sons, are to be tried on corruption charges.
