Pakistani court extends Musharraf's custody

10-25-2013 23:20 BJT

A Pakistani court has ordered former president Pervez Musharraf to remain under house arrest until Tuesday. Musharraf was arrested again two weeks ago on charges related to a 2007 raid on a radical mosque.

His lawyer had just announced he was free to leave the country after being granted bail in another unrelated case. Friday’s hearing was held at Musharraf’s villa on the outskirts of Islamabad.

Musharraf seized power in a coup in 1999, and was forced into exile nine years later after a showdown with the judiciary. He returned to Pakistan this year to contest elections but was barred from standing by a flurry of court cases.
