Former Pakistani president faces arrest

2012-01-07 22:00

Islamabad - A government prosecutor says former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf will be arrested in connection with the killing of ex-prime minister Benazir Bhutto if he returns home this month.

Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali says Musharraf would be arrested under a court order.

Hours earlier, Musharraf told a Pakistani news channel that he would come back later this month to contest the next parliamentary elections, which could be held later this year.

Musharraf has been living in London and Dubai since 2008 when the government, led by Bhutto's party, forced him to resign.

Bhutto died in a gun and suicide bomb attack in December 2007.

Prosecutors allege Musharraf was part of a conspiracy to kill her. Musharraf has denied the charge.
