My River Path colleague (and co-author of A Long Peace?), David Steven, just happens to be in Pakistan at the moment former Premier Nawaz Sharif returned to a country still under the military dictatorship of General Musharraf. At the moment (he’s updating as things happen), it looks like he’s on a helicopter en route back out of the country.
Update: In the end, Sharif spent just five hours on the ground.
