Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has been charged with the murder of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto in 2007. The ex-military leader has denied all the charges against him.
"He was charged with murder, criminal conspiracy for murder and facilitation for murder," Public Prosecutor Chaudhry Azhar told AFP at the anti-terrorism court in Rawalpindi hearing the case.
Then-opposition leader Benazir Bhutto was killed in December 2007 during a political rally in the city of Rawalpindi by a suicide bomber. The judge ruled that Musharraf was complicit in her murder because he had not provided adequate security during the rally.
