A bystander hurled a shoe at former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf on Friday, CNN affiliate Geo TV reported, as he headed into a Karachi court to seek a bail extension.
It was unclear whether the shoe hit the former president, who was surrounded by a crowd, the affiliate said.

Despite the incident outside court, judges granted him a bail extension, according to his spokesman, Aasia Ishaque.

There are three court cases pending against Musharraf, and Friday's bail extension applies to all three of them, Ishaque said.

The court initially granted him "protective" bail to ward off a potential arrest when he returned back to the country about a week ago.
 
Musharraf resigned as president of the south Asian nation five years ago and went into exile in London and Dubai. He returned Sunday, saying he planned to face the accusations and run for presidency in May elections.
