Pakistan's Musharraf in court for first time to face treason charges

ISLAMABAD (AFP) - Pakistan's former military ruler Pervez Musharraf arrived at court on Tuesday for the first time to face charges in a treason case he has denounced as a score-settling exercise by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

The 70-year-old arrived in a heavily protected cavalcade at the National Library in Islamabad where the court has been holding hearings, an AFP photographer said.
