A Pakistan court has granted bail to Pervez Musharraf, the former military ruler, over a deadly raid on a mosque, bringing closer his possible release after more than six months of house arrest. The ruling by an Islamabad district court on Monday means Musharraf is on bail in all the cases brought against him since his return to Pakistan from self-imposed exile, including one relating to the assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto.
