LONDON (AFP) - British police were probing why a top secret file detailing security arrangements for the visit of Pakistani President Pervez
Musharraf to Britain this week was found abandoned on a London street.
The 17-page document was reportedly found by a delivery driver in a brown envelope on upmarket Curzon Street hours before Musharraf and his wife
touched down at Heathrow from Washington on Sunday.
Titled "Visit of His Excellency General Pervez Musharraf, President of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan", the papers reportedly disclosed the
security arrangements at the London hotel where the president and his entourage were staying.
The dossier containing maps showing Musharraf's movements, explaining how to identify undercover police, and giving details of police radio channels
and secret police call signs, was given to the Daily Mirror newspaper.

Musharraf seems to lead a charmed life. He escaped an assassination attempt earlier in the year when a jamming device detonated a bomb after his car
had passed it. Now this occurs. No doubt it was a mistake, but it comes on the heels of the French police “losing” a training bag of plastic
explosives on any of 90 flights. Given the closeness of the events, no doubt the risk was deemed low and its such as movements and the like can be
changed easily for security. But human error makes it tough to defend against all terrorism.
