Pakistan charges six Rangers with murder

KARACHI (Reuters) - A Pakistani court Wednesday charged six members of a paramilitary force with murder for the killing of an unarmed man, in a rare action against the country's powerful security establishment.

The incident in the southern city of Karachi was caught on videotape and broadcast on television channels nationwide, deepening anger against the security forces already under pressure since Osama bin Laden's killing in May in a U.S. raid.
