A Pakistani judge threw out charges of attempted murder against a nine-month-old baby yesterday.

Baby Musa Khan appeared in court in the city of Lahore, sitting on his grandfather's lap and drinking from a bottle of milk. He and his adult relatives were charged earlier this month with attempting to murder a policeman after the family clashed with police and gas company workers trying to collect overdue bills. Police registered a case against the whole family.

The baby's grandfather, Muhammad Yasin, and his three sons, still face the charges.
