ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistani police say they have opened a murder investigation into former president Pervez Musharraf's role in the death of a radical cleric killed during a raid of a mosque in downtown Islamabad.
Police official Mohammad Yousuf says Monday police are investigating Musharraf's role in the operation against the hard-line Red Mosque in 2007 that killed nearly 100 people.
Musharraf ordered the raid in response to increasing complaints against the mosque. Students there had begun raiding massage parlors, shops selling movies and other places they deemed as centers of vulgarity.
The mosque raid set off widespread counterattacks by militants that added to Musharraf's unpopularity.
After four years in self-exile Musharraf returned to Pakistan in March but has faced a string of legal problems since then.
