Musharraf prosecutor gunned downIn an attack that shocked this usually sedate capital, gunmen on Friday morning shot to death the Pakistani government’s top prosecutor in a case accusing former military ruler Pervez Musharraf of involvement in the 2007 assassination of ex-prime minister Benazir Bhutto, police said.

The gunmen opened fire on state prosecutor Chaudhry Zulfikar’s car as he was leaving his home here en route to an anti-terrorism court in nearby Rawalpindi for trial proceedings in the Bhutto case. The shooters used either a taxi or motorbike in the attack, police said in conflicting reports.

The assailants escaped, and authorities said the motive for the attack was not known.

“The police are not aware of any threats being received by the state prosecutor,” said Irshad Abro, a senior police official.
