Chaudhry is charged with misconduct and abuse of authority. This week the Pakistani newspaper The News reported that the government would reduce some of the charges but would not reinstate Chaudhry who has been an outspoken critic of Musharraf. No one has claimed responsibility for today’s bombing which happened at a time of increasing tensions between the government and Islamic militants. An Associated Press TV cameraman covering the rally captured the moment the bomb went off as well as the chaos that followed. Note: the pictures are graphic.
