ISLAMABAD - A Pakistani court ordered the confiscation of exiled former president Pervez Musharraf's property and the freezing of his Pakistan bank accounts over accusations that he failed to provide security for assassinated former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, a lawyer said on Sunday.

The charismatic Bhutto was the first female prime minister in the Muslim world. She was killed in December 2007, when Musharraf was president, in a gun and suicide bomb attack after an election rally in the city of Rawalpindi after she had returned from years of self-imposed exile.

An anti-terrorism court in February issued an arrest warrant for Musharraf, now living in self-exile in Dubai, and then declared him a fugitive of law after he failed to respond.

The court on Saturday ordered the seizure of his entire property and the freezing of bank accounts in Pakistan after he again failed to respond to accusations.
