A court in Pakistan granted former president Pervez Musharraf bail on Monday taking him one step closer to freedom after months under house arrest. The former military dictator has been embroiled in a web of legal cases after returning to Pakistan in March from self-imposed exile. His arrest was unprecedented in a country where the army wields enormous power. Musharraf has already been granted bail in two other cases. He is currently under house arrest in a villa on the outskirts of Islamabad. Musharraf took power in a 1999 coup but was ousted by popular protests led by the country's judiciary.
