He fled a court-house in Islamabad today after judges revoked bail and ordered his arrest.

The BBC's Mohammad Waziri was in the court-house and says officers moved toward him.

But Musharraf was hustled out of the courtroom, surrounded by bodyguards, and fled in his bullet-proof vehicle.

He's now holed up in his heavily guarded farmhouse on the outskirts of Islamabad.

His lawyers deny they "fled" and simply left.

They say he hopes to appeal.
