Pakistan re-arrests Musharraf over Red Mosque raid
ISLAMABAD (AFP) - Pakistani police said on Thursday they had arrested former military ruler Pervez Musharraf over the 2007 raid of the Red Mosque in Islamabad, a day after a court granted him bail in a separate case.
"We have put General Musharraf under house arrest in a case involving a military operation on an Islamabad mosque," Mr Muhammad Rizwan, a senior official of the Islamabad police told reporters.
"We will present him before a court on Friday," Mr Rizwan added, after visiting Musharraf's plush villa at the edge of Islamabad, which has been declared a sub-jail.
Pakistan's Supreme Court on Wednesday granted bail to Musharraf over the death of a rebel leader, a move that observers had thought would bring closer his possible release after nearly six months of house arrest.
