Tens of thousands of ecstatic supporters of Benazir Bhutto swarmed around Karachi airport Thursday to welcome the former prime minister back into the political limelight after more than eight years in exile. Bhutto, who had fled corruption charges, flew out of Dubai on Thursday morning bound for a street party in Pakistan's biggest city that could propel her toward a record third premiership, perhaps in tandem with Pakistan's US-backed military president. Authorities were mounting a massive security operation to protect the 54-year-old from possible attack by Islamic militants. But the precautions failed to dampen the spirit of huge crowds forming near the airport.
