A court in Pakistan has ordered the arrest of former military ruler Pervez Musharraf for the house arrest of judges in March 2007.

Mr Musharraf was present at the Islamabad High Court on Thursday when the judges issued the order.

He had been seeking bail in the case, the BBC reports.

Police present at the court did not arrest him when the order was made.

The retired general immediately left the court and drove away escorted by his security detail.
