Nawaz Sharif deported within hours of arriving in Pakistan

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been arrested and deported within hours of returning to Pakistan from exile, officials say.

After landing in Islamabad he was charged and put on board a plane, reportedly bound for Saudi Arabia.

Mr Sharif says he wants to challenge President Pervez Musharraf, who ousted him in a 1999 coup, ahead of elections.

Mr Sharif arrived home weeks after Pakistan’s Supreme Court affirmed his right to return.

On board the plane which flew him home from London, Mr Sharif told the BBC he wanted to help restore the rule of law.
