The chief cleric of the radical mosque besieged by security forces in the Pakistani capital Wednesday was caught trying to slip away wearing a woman's burqa, a senior official said. A female police officer searching women fleeing the mosque's madrassah discovered Maulana Abdul Aziz under an all-enveloping black shroud, said Khalid Pervez, the city's top administrator.
