Pakistan's former military ruler Pervez Musharraf flew home on Sunday, landing at Karachi airport after more than four years in exile, defying a Taliban death threat to contest historic general elections.

His scheduled Emirates flight from Dubai landed at around 12:45 local time (0745 GMT) after a journey that saw his official Facebook and Twitter accounts provide a running commentary, posting messages and photographs of him on board.
