Pakistan's former military ruler Pervez Musharraf is expected to fly home on Sunday after more than four years in exile, defying a Taliban death threat to contest historic general elections. 

Pakistan's former military ruler Pervez Musharraf (C) arrives at the Dubai international airport before his departure to Karachi, in the Gulf emirate of Dubai, on March 24, 2013. Musharraf is to fly home after more than four years in exile, defying a Taliban death threat to contest historic general elections.

The 69-year-old ex-dictator says he is prepared to risk any danger to stand for election on May 11, billed to mark the first democratic transition of power in the history of a nuclear-armed country dominated by periods of military rule.
