    Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has survived yet another assassination attempt, this time when a bomb went off along his route home from a hospital in Islamabad.

Musharraf, who is on trial, has survived multiple attempts both when he was in office, and since he has returned to Pakistan.
