The Associated Press took a look at some of the restrictions of rights suspended by President George W. Bush's key terrorism ally General Pervez Musharraf Sunday. They follow.

  • Protection of life and liberty.

  • The right to free movement.

  • The right of detainees to be informed of their offense and given access to lawyers.

  • Protection of property rights.

  • The right to assemble in public.

  • The right to free speech.

  • Equal rights for all citizens before law and equal legal protection.

  • Media coverage of suicide bombings and militant activity is curtailed by new rules. Broadcasters also face a three-year jail term if they "ridicule" members of the government or armed forces.
