    Reuters: Pakistan police arrest former president Musharraf

    Pakistani police arrested former president Pervez Musharraf at his home on the outskirts of Islamabad on Friday and presented him in court in connection with allegations he committed treason while in office, media reports and his lawyers said...

    Qamar Afzal, Musharraf's lawyer, said Musharraf had voluntarily presented himself at the court.

    Afzal said he had asked the court to order police to place Musharraf under house arrest at his residence rather than put him in jail. Musharraf returned to his residence after the brief hearing, Afzal added.
