    BBC News - Pakistan PM Yousuf Raza Gilani charged with contempt
    .
    .
    Pakistani PM Yousuf Raza Gilani has been charged with contempt in an appearance before the country's Supreme Court.

    Mr Gilani is accused of failing to re-open corruption cases against President Asif Ali Zardari.
    The prime minister, who faces jail and being barred from office if convicted, pleaded not guilty.
    Mr Gilani argues that the president - who denies the corruption charges - has immunity as head of state.
    President Zardari is accused of using Swiss bank accounts to launder bribes.
    The Supreme Court has said Mr Gilani defied a court order to write to the Swiss authorities and ask them to re-open the cases against Mr Zardari.
    Mr Zardari says the charges against him are politically motivated.
    Analysts say the case is part of a stand-off between the government and the judiciary, which many believe is being backed by the military as it pursues the case against the civilian administration.
    In an interview with Al-Jazeera television, Mr
    Gilani acknowledged he would have to stand down if convicted.
    "If I'm convicted, then I'm not even supposed to be a member of the parliament," he said.
