Musharraf's eventual army successor takes up post

Pakistan's former spymaster took over as the vice chief of army staff yesterday, setting up to succeed President Pervez Musharraf as leader of the army in coming weeks, officials said.
General Ashfaq Kiyani, the ex-head of the Inter-Services Intelligence or ISI, received a guard of honour at army headquarters in Rawalpindi as he arrived to take up the post, a military statement said.
"A ceremony was held at the general headquarters to formally welcome the newly appointed vice chief of army staff on assuming charge of the new appointment," it said.
"A smartly turned out contingent of the Pakistan army presented a guard of honour to the vice chief of army staff."
After reviewing the parade Kiyani was officially introduced to principal staff officers, the statement said.
