Pakistani court rejects Musharraf’s bail request

ISLAMABAD — A Pakistani court rejected bail on Wednesday for former military ruler Pervez Musharraf in a case connected to the assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto in 2007, a government prosecutor said.

It was the latest setback for Musharraf, who returned to Pakistan last month from four years in self-imposed exile to make a political comeback but is under house arrest in connection with a different case.
