The Al-Akhbar daily reported that prosecutors partly relied on testimony provided by Omar Suleiman, the former head of intelligence and briefly vice president, to charge Mubarak with premeditated murder.
"Mubarak had complete knowledge of every bullet fired at protesters, and the number of those killed or wounded," Suleiman is reported to have told prosecutors.
Suleiman said he relayed to the president hourly updates on the police's deadly response to the mass protests that began on January 25 to overthrow Mubarak, who ruled the country for three decades.
"The reports included all instances of firing live ammunition and rubber bullets at protesters in an attempt to abort the revolution," Al-Akhbar reported.
An official inquiry found that at least 846 people were killed during the revolt that ousted Mubarak on February 11, many of them from gunshot wounds. The justice minister has said Mubarak may be put to death if convicted.
