Former Pakistan President Granted Bail

Pakistan's Supreme Court granted bail to the beleaguered ex-military dictator and civilian President Pervez Musharraf over the death of a Baloch rebel in 2006.

The decision means Musharraf, 70, has been granted bail in three major cases against him, including one relating to the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

The decision in the case of rebel leader Nawab Akbar Bugti also increases the chances that the former dictator is released after nearly six months of house arrest, Dawn.com news reported.
