Pakistan frees Pervez Musharraf from house arrest

Thursday, 07 November 2013 - 13:29

Pakistan's former military ruler Pervez Musharraf has been released from house arrest and is free to move around the country.


It comes days after he was bailed over the 2007 army operation to oust militants from Islamabad's Red Mosque - the last legal case against him.


But the former general remains on a government exit control list and cannot leave the country.


It is also unclear if he will leave the house because of threats to his life.


Musharraf's seven-month house arrest was unprecedented in a country which has been ruled by the military for more than half of its history.
