Musharraf decries terrorism and judiciary

SLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf addressed the nation on Saturday hours after imposing emergency rule, saying terrorism and extremism had reached their limit and his country's sovereignty was at stake.

Musharraf, whose emergency rule proclamation cited rising militancy and a hostile judiciary, said Pakistan's system of government had become paralysed by judicial interference.

"Pakistan has reached a dangerous point, and is undergoing an internal crisis," he said in a televised address. "Whatever is happening is because of internal disturbances."
