 ISLAMABAD - A Pakistani court on Monday indicted former military ruler Pervez Musharraf for treason on charges relating to his 2007 imposition of emergency rule.

Judge Tahira Safdar read out five charges to Musharraf, who ruled from 1999 to 2008, with the ex-president pleading "not guilty" to each of them.
