ISLAMABAD (AP) - A special Pakistani court has indicted former military ruler Pervez Musharraf in a high treason case.

Musharraf appeared in court today and pleaded not guilty to five counts of treason for suspending the country's constitution by imposing emergency rule in 2007.

The development is a huge blow to Pakistan's powerful military and the first time in the country that any acting or former army chief has been charged with treason.
