RAWALPINDI, Pakistan (CBS News) -- A Pakistani court has indicted former Pakistani president and army chief Pervez Musharraf, in the 2007 assassination of a former prime minister.

Afsha Adil, a member of Musharraf's legal team, said Musharraf pleaded not guilty.

Former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was killed in 2007 during a rally in the city of Rawalpindi.

Prosecutor Chaudry Muhammed Azhar said the charges include murder, conspiracy to commit murder and facilitation of murder.

Prosecutors have said Musharraf, who was president at the time, failed to properly protect her.

Musharraf has faced a litany of charges relating to his rule since returning to the country in March from self-imposed exile.
