Musharraf announces return to Pakistan

Posted 9 January 2012, 21:38 AEDT

From Benazir Bhutto to Nawaz Sharif.

..Pakistan has seen it's fair share of high profile political exiles making dramatic returns to their homelands.

And this month could see another former leader make his comeback to Pakistan's political scene.

Pervez Musharraf has announced that he'll return at the end of the month, after spending more than three years in self exile in London.

His plans come despite threats he could be arrested, after warrants were issued last years, over the assasination of Benazir Bhutto and the death of a rebel leader during an army raid.

Presenter: Girish Sawlani

Speakers: Former Pakistani prime minister Pervez Musharraf; Pakistan analyst Dr Christopher Snedden
