Pakistan's Pervez Musharraf appears in court

In Pakistan, former leader Pervez Musharraf has appeared in court for the first time, on treason charges.

Security and health concerns prevented him from attending earlier hearings, and he has been in hospital for more than a month.

Mr Musharraf is accused of unlawfully suspending the constitution and instituting emergency rule in 2007, and faces the death penalty if found guilty.

Shahzeb Jillani reports from Karachi.
