Sharif deported from Pakistan
( AP ) - Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was deported Monday hours after he had landed in Pakistan from seven years in exile hoping to campaign against the country's U.S.-allied military ruler, two officials and Pakistani media reported.
About four hours after he arrived on a flight from London, Sharif was taken into custody and charged with corruption, but then quickly spirited to another plane and flown out of Pakistan toward Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, an intelligence official said.
An official in President Gen. Musharraf's office confirmed Sharif was deported but did not divulge his destination.
Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to speak to media.
