The United States threatened to bomb Pakistan "back to the stone age" unless it joined the fight against al-Qaeda, President Pervez Musharraf says.
General Musharraf said the warning was delivered by former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage to Pakistan's intelligence director.
"I think it was a very rude remark," Mr Musharraf told CBS television.

"One has to think and take actions in the interest of the nation, and that's what I did," he said.
