CA condemns attempt on Musharraf's life

Chief Adviser Fakhruddin Ahmed yesterday condemned the assassination attempt on Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf.

"I have been deeply shocked at the news of the cowardly attempt on your life," he said in a message to the Pakistan president.

"The government and people of Bangladesh join me in condemning this dastardly act. We thank Almighty Allah for protecting you and pray that He grant you long life and good health to serve the cause of peace," he added.

The Pakistan president survived an apparent assassination attempt on Friday after his aircraft was fired on. His plane was shot at as it left the Chaklala military airbase in

Rawalpindi, a garrison town outside the capital Islamabad.
