ISLAMABAD - Pakistani police arrested the son of a former prime minister on Friday in connection with a drugs case, the latest twist in a power struggle between the increasingly assertive Supreme Court and the ruling party.

The feud could hurt Pakistan's young democracy and distract the government from tackling widespread poverty, a Taliban insurgency and chronic power shortages.

Police said they detained Ali Musa Gilani ahead of his scheduled court appearance.
