Rawalpindi: An anti-terrorism court in Pakistan has extended former president and military ruler Pervez Musharraf 's house arrest over the murder of former premierBenazir Bhutto until May 28, according to a prosecutor.

The Daily Times quoted prosecutor Chaudhry Azhar as saying that the court also put off hearing a bail application by Musharraf until May 20.

He added that the adjournment came after Musharraf's lawyer Salman Safdar could not attend the hearing.

This was the first hearing after the main state prosecutor handling Bhutto's 2007 murder and the 2008 Mumbai attacks, Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali, was shot dead in Islamabad en route to court on May 3.

Musharraf is accused of conspiracy to murder two-time prime minister Benazir.
