All judges jailed by Musharraf freed
Pakistan's deposed chief justice made his first public appearance in four months Monday after the country's newly-elected premier ordered judges detained by President Pervez Musharraf to be freed.

Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry waved from the balcony of his house in the capital Islamabad, where he has been kept under house arrest since Musharraf sacked him under a state of emergency on November 3.

A beaming Chaudhry, accompanied by his wife and children, waved to chanting supporters who chanted slogans in support of the judiciary and waved flags.
