'Thousands released' in Pakistan


news.bbc.co.uk

The Pakistani government says it has now released some 3,400 people jailed under emergency rule.
The release of political opponents has been a key demand of opposition parties who are threatening to boycott parliamentary elections in January.

A number of leading political figures are still being held.

President Pervez Musharraf imposed emergency rule on 3 November, saying the measure was needed to rein in the judiciary and fight extremists.

At firs this does seem to be a move in the direction to make things better in Pakistan. However the emergency rule and suspending the constitution have not been stopped. I am not going to try and guess what the next move will be, I just hope that Pakistan will not end up in a civil war.
