ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- For years, this nation's top judge has been a thorn in the side of President Pervez Musharraf. But just how big a thorn did not become apparent until Musharraf tried sacking the independent-minded jurist last week. Yesterday, riot police resorted to tear gas and batons to beat back hundreds of protesters who had gathered in downtown Islamabad to show their support for suspended Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry. Authorities detained scores of activists, carted away a prominent opposition leader and raided a popular private TV station that had closely covered the controversy.

ISLMABAD, Pakistan -- Deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry, an icon of resistance to the rule of Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, emerged late yesterday from nearly five months of house arrest. He was freed as the first act of a Benazir Bhutto loyalist elected as prime minister hours earlier. It was the latest tumultuous twist in a Pakistani political saga that over the past year has seen the fall from grace of the U.S.-backed Musharraf, the Dec. 27 assassination of Bhutto and the triumph of her party in last month's elections.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- Adding to the intense political pressure on President Pervez Musharraf, Pakistan's Supreme Court ordered yesterday the release of an important opposition figure who has been imprisoned since 2004 after being convicted of inciting mutiny. The order to release Javed Hashmi is the latest setback for Musharraf, who is struggling to retain his positions as army general and the country's political leader. The three-judge panel that made the ruling was chaired by Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry, who emerged victorious from a months-long showdown with Musharraf.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- In a serious new blow to beleaguered president Gen. Pervez Musharraf, the Supreme Court voted unanimously yesterday to reinstate Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry, the outspoken jurist whose suspension four months ago galvanized a broad-based pro-democracy movement. The development comes amid the greatest turmoil in Pakistan since Musharraf seized power in a coup eight years ago. Nearly 200 people have been killed this month in suicide bombings and confrontations between Pakistani security forces and Islamic militants, which were ignited by the storming of a radical mosque in the capital, Islamabad.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- Men armed with assault rifles battled for hours yesterday in a confrontation between pro- and anti-government forces that raged through residential neighborhoods in Karachi, the country's largest city, killing at least 28 people and injuring more than 100 others.
