Pakistani opposition leader plans new return from exile

Pakistan's military ruler faced new challenges Friday after an opposition party said its exiled leader would make another attempt to return home and the Commonwealth suspended the country's membership until it restores democracy. The return of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif from Saudi Arabia would bolster opponents of President Gen. Pervez Musharraf ahead of Jan. 8 parliamentary elections, and complicate pro-Western rival Benazir Bhutto's bid to return to power.
