PAKISTAN-UNREST-VOTE-MUSHARRAF-ARREST

Chief cleric of Red Mosque, Maulana Abdul Aziz talks to the media during a news conference in Islamabad on March 26, 2013. Aziz, on March 26 demanded that the government immediately arrest former president Pervez Musharraf and put him on trial for killing hunderds of innocent people. 'Musharraf should be brought to justice and awarded stern punishment' for crimes against humanity, said Maulana Abdul Aziz, who was captured during the 2007 siege of a radical mosque in Islamabad, ordered by Musharraf. The operation left more than 100 people dead and opened the floodgates to a Taliban-led insurgency in Pakistan, which has killed thousands of people. Musharraf on Sunday returned to Pakistan, ending more than four years in self-imposed exile, to contest historic general elections due on May 11.
