Former Pakistani military ruler Pervez Musharraf and his bodyguards pushed past policemen and sped away from court in the country's capital Thursday to avoid arrest after his bail was revoked in a case accusing him of detaining senior judges while in power. The 69-year-old Musharraf jumped into a black SUV and escaped as a member of his security team hung to the side of the vehicle in a dramatic scene that was broadcast live on Pakistani TV.
