RAWALPINDI, Pakistan — In an Aug. 20 story about former Pakistani president and army chief Pervez Musharraf being indicted on murder charges stemming from the 2007 assassination of ex-Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, The Associated Press erroneously reported that it was the first time a current or former army chief has been charged with a crime in the country. One of Musharraf's lawyers, Ilyas Siddiqui, said it was the second time Musharraf has been charged with a crime. An anti-terrorism court indicted Musharraf on June 15 on the charge of illegally detaining judges following the declaration of a state of emergency in November 2007.
