Shoe thrown at Pakistan’s Musharraf at court
ISLAMABAD — A shoe was thrown at former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf as he headed to court to face legal charges after returning from self-imposed exile.
Local TV channels showed video of the shoe being thrown at Musharraf inside a court building in the southern city of Karachi on Friday.
Musharraf is seen surrounded by a mob of supporters and journalists and it was difficult to tell from the video who threw the shoe or if it hit the former leader.
Musharraf, who first seized power in a military coup in 1999, returned to Pakistan last weekend. He faces legal charges, including some originating from a probe of the 2007 assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.
