Musharraf to Return to Pakistan

Things are about to get even more shaky in Pakistan. Former President Pervez Musharraf said Sunday that he’ll be back in Pakistan this month to prep for the elections. Pakistani prosecutors, however, say they will detain him if he steps foot in the country on a 2008 charge that he didn’t provide protection for P.M. Benazir Bhutto, who was assassinated. The Army, some believe, will not let the arrest take place—meaning current unpopular President Zardari may have to step in. Musharraf has been living in London and Dubai.
