ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s former president General Pervez Musharraf, who seized power in a coup in 1999, passed away aged 79 on Sunday.

Musharraf, who was Pakistan’s President between 2001 and 2008, died in Dubai after a long illness, BBC reported.

He had survived numerous assassination attempts, and found himself on the front line of the struggle between militant Islamists and the West, according to the report.

He supported the US “war on terror” after 9/11 despite domestic opposition.
