Analysts have speculated that a treason case against Musharraf could also ensnare many other officials who were in power when he declared a state of emergency in 2007.

Also Wednesday, a bomb targeting a senior judge in the southern city of Karachi wounded him and killed seven members of the security forces, said Sharjeel Memon, information minister for southern Sindh province. The explosion also wounded 15 people, he said.

Pakistani Taliban spokesman Ahsanullah Ahsan claimed responsibility for the attack on the judge, Maqbool Baqir, saying he was taking decisions against the militants and Islamic law.
