Former Pakistan dictator Musharraf granted bail:  lawyer

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan's former military dictator, Pervez Musharraf, was granted bail on Monday in a case related to the killing of a cleric, taking him a step closer to freedom after months under house arrest and legal wrangling over his fate.

"The court has granted him bail," said Afghan Adil, a member of Musharraf's legal team, told reporters. "Musharraf will not leave the country and will face all the cases."
