Pervez Musharraf arrives back in Pakistan

24 March 2013 Last updated at 11:06 GMT

The former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has arrived back in the country after four years of self-imposed exile.

He was met at the airport by a heavily armed squad of commandos, in response to assassination threats from the Taliban.

He plans to lead his party in Pakistan's general election in May.

The BBC's Orla Guerin, who travelled with Mr Musharraf, says the flight "turned into a mini campaign rally."
