Musharraf lawyer: Arrest 'no ordinary matter'

A court has ordered the arrest of Gen Pervez Musharraf over his attempt when he was Pakistan's military ruler to impose house arrest on judges in March 2007.

Mr Musharraf was present at the Islamabad High Court when the judges issued the order. He had been seeking to extend bail in the case.

Police made no attempt to arrest him as he left the court.

Ahmed Raza Kasuri, a barrister for Mr Musharraf, expressed his surprise at the decision.
