Pakistan will ask Interpol to arrest the former President, Pervez Musharraf, for his failure to prevent the assassination of Benazir Bhutto in 2007.

The Interior Minister, Rehman Malik, accused General Musharraf of providing inadequate security for Ms Bhutto, a former Prime Minister.

In response, General Musharraf, who went into exile in Britain after being forced out of the presidency in 2008, said the government was playing politics.

"This is all politics," he told the ARY television station yesterday. "It's just point scoring and nothing else."
