Saturday, October 6 in the news.....

  • Pakistan's military ruler General Pervez Musharraf swept the most votes in a presidential election on Saturday, Election Commission officials said. His opponents congratulated him and said he won it fair and square, if fair and square meant more guns and soldiers.

  • British tabloid newspapers opted not to publish paparazzi pictures of Prince William and his girlfriend Kate Middleton on Saturday after he complained they had been aggressively pursued by photographers after leaving a London club. Prince Harry was asked if he was ever pursued like this, but couldn't recall an incident, since he's usually passed out in the backseat.
