Pakistan's Supreme Court on Monday suspended a judicial inquiry into misconduct charges against the country's top judge that triggered weeks of nationwide protests.

The court ordered the move, a decision likely to embarrass President Pervez Musharraf's government, as it took up a petition from Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry challenging his suspension from office.
