    This is not quite the homecoming Pervez Musharraf had in mind. A Pakistani prosecutor said Saturday that the former prime minister will be arrested for his role in the death of former prime minister Benzair Bhutto. Musharraf announced Friday that he intends to leave London, where he has been living in exile since 2008, to go back to Pakistan, where a warrant for his arrest was issued in February 2011. Musharraf said he will announce the exact date of his return at a Karachi rally on Sunday, though it’s believed he will return on either Jan. 25 or Jan. 29.
