Pakistan's former military ruler Pervez Musharraf was on Sunday en route back to Pakistan after more than four years in self-imposed exile.

His scheduled Emirates flight took off from Dubai at around 10:15 am (0615 GMT), said an AFP journalist on board. "Long life to Musharraf," sang supporters of the former ruler, annoying some regular passengers. The plane is due to land in Karachi.
