Bhutto says Musharraf imposes "mini-martial law"
KARACHI, Nov 3 (Reuters) Former Pakistan prime minister Benazir Bhutto described the imposition of emergency rule by President Pervez Musharraf today as ''mini-martial law'' and vowed that her party will protest against it.
''We condemn this martial law. We will protest it,'' Bhutto said in a news conference in the southern city of Karachi a little over an hour after arriving back from Dubai, where she had been visiting her family.
Bhutto had been negotiating with Musharraf over Pakistan's transition to civilian led-democracy and had been allowed to return from self-imposed exile last month without fear of prosecution in old corruption cases thanks to an amnesty granted by the president.
