Pakistani PM withdraws orders on judges

Pakistan's government withdrew on Wednesday orders issued by the president appointing two judges which the Supreme Court said were apparently unconstitutional, Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani said.

The withdrawal of the order, which Zardari issued on Saturday and the Supreme Court blocked hours later, averted a potentially confrontation between the president and the judiciary.
