Zardari returns to Pakistan from Dubai trip, spokesman says

ISLAMABAD - President Asif Ali Zardari returned to Pakistan on Friday from a trip to Dubai, his spokesman said, as speculation swirled over whether he would survive heightened tension between his civilian government and the country's powerful military.
"The president returned to Islamabad in the wee hours of Friday morning," the spokesman, Farhatullah Babar, told Reuters.
A disputed memo allegedly from Zardari's government seeking US help in reining in the military has soured relations to their lowest point since a coup in 1999.
