5:38 am on 11 April 2011

An anti-terrorism court in Pakistan has directed the government to pursue the arrest of former President Pervez Musharraf.

Prosecutors accuse him of failing to provide adequate security for former prime minister Benazir Bhutto when she was killed on 27 December, 2007 in Rawalpindi, Pakistan.

The BBC reports a special court issued a warrant for his arrest in February. Mr Musharraf is now based in London.
