Key prosecutor gunned down in Pakistan

Was leading Musharraf case

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Gunmen shot to death the Pakistani government’s top prosecutor Friday morning in a case that accuses former military ruler Pervez Musharraf of involvement in the 2007 assassination of ex-Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, police said.

The gunmen opened fire on Chaudhry Zulfikar’s car as he was leaving his home en route to an antiterrorism court in nearby Rawalpindi. The shooters used either a taxi or motorbike in the attack, police said in conflicting reports.
