This is a photo taken on a Pakistan International Airlines flight on Sunday, Sept. 9 as former Pakistani prime minsiter Nawaz Sharif headed to Pakistan from London, ending his seven-year exile in Saudi Arabia. But here's what happened within three hours of his landing, according to Bloomberg:
Pakistan's former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was deported to Saudi Arabia after being arrested by police on his arrival at Islamabad International Airport. The move will be challenged in the country's Supreme Court.
Sharif, who tried to return from exile to lead a campaign against President Pervez Musharraf, was ousted in a military coup by Musharraf in 1999. He was taken into custody on corruption charges three hours after landing in the capital from London, a government official, who requested anonymity, said by telephone. He was deported by plane about an hour later, the official said.
