Bhutto vows early Pakistan return

Former Pakistani PM Benazir Bhutto says she will return to the country “very soon“, despite having reached no power-sharing deal with the government.

Ms Bhutto had been in talks to become PM, with beleaguered Gen Pervez Musharraf stepping down as army chief but seeking a new term as president.

Ms Bhutto said she would announce the date of her return on 14 September.

Another former PM, Nawaz Sharif, has also announced he will return to challenge Gen Musharraf.
