A bomb has targeted the convoy route of Pakistan’s former military ruler, Pervez Musharraf, within minutes of him passing, police say.

They said it was an attempt to target the former president, however, no casualties were reported.

The blast struck a bridge on Mr Musharraf’s route from a hospital in Rawalpindi, where he was being treated.

He was admitted to hospital for chest pain in January on his way to court at the start of his trial for treason.

Earlier this week, the former army chief was charged with five counts of treason over alleged constitutional violations during his time in power.

Mr Musharraf, 70, has denied the charges and says all the accusations against him are politically motivated.
