3 Muslims sentenced to life for attempting to kill Musharraf in 2002

An anti-terrorism court sentenced three Muslim militants to life in prison on Tuesday for attempting to kill President Pervez Musharraf in 2002, a state prosecutor said. The court found the three men guilty of plotting to kill Musharraf by setting off a car bomb as his convoy passed in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi. However, the car did not explode because the remote control device used to detonate it malfunctioned, a judge at the Karachi's anti-terrorism court said, according to state prosecutor Naimat Randhawa.
