Pakistani forces whisk away Musharraf on return

KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) — Security forces whisked away former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf after he landed in the southern port city of Karachi, ending more than four years in self-exile.

The security forces took Musharraf away Sunday in a convoy of about a dozen vehicles and did not allow him to greet hundreds of supporters waiting for him at the airport.

It's unclear if the security forces had detained the former president or were acting out of concerns for his safety.

Musharraf is seeking a possible political comeback in defiance of judicial probes and death threats from Taliban militants.
