Wanted Pakistani man surfaces in video

Adnan Rashid, freed in Taliban-orchestrated jail break, had been sentenced to death for plotting to kill the president.

    Adnan Rashid, one of Pakistan's most-wanted persons, has made a brazen appearance on a Pakistani Taliban video days after escaping a northwestern Pakistan prison.

    Rashid, one of the orchestrators of a plot to assassinate Pervez Musharraf, the former Pakistani president, was freed eight years and four months into a death sentence when armed men associated with the Pakistani Taliban stormed the prison last week.
