Much of the eastern city of Lahore, the hometown of both Khan and Sharif, was on alert for protests by Sharif's supporters.

A spokesman for Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party confirmed they were arrested soon afterwards.

In a video message from his aircraft en route to Pakistan, Sharif said he knew he would be taken directly to prison on his return.

Pakistani and global rights groups have accused the military of seeking to maintain its influence in Pakistani politics by keeping Sharif out of power.

There was barbed wire across some roads leading to Lahore airport on Friday and barricades at the roadside ready to close off main boulevards should crowds start to gather. There were no immediate reports of injuries. At least 10,000 personnel were deployed across Lahore to prevent them from according Sharif a grand welcome back to the party.

Sharif has decried tactics ordered by the caretaker government that took over in June ahead of the general election.

"Why is Lahore under siege?"

Former lawmaker Imran Khan, who hopes to become the next prime minister, condemned Friday's attack against his opponent, Durrani.

The country's media regulator warned local news channels to abstain from airing statements 'by political leadership containing defamatory and derogatory content targeting. judiciary and armed forces'.

More than 100 people were wounded in the suicide bomb attack at the election rally in the town of Mastung.

More than 20 years after Khan founded his political party, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (Pakistan Movement for Justice), the man still revered by many as captain of Pakistan's 1992 World Cup-winning cricket team, feels the stars have finally aligned for him.

The updated timeline has muted USA price gains and widened the difference between the two benchmarks, said Yawger. That decline was larger than expected, causing crude futures to gain in post-settlement trading.

Sharif, a three-time prime minister, was sentenced to 10 years in prison and a $10.5m fine, while his daughter was given a seven-year sentence and $2.6m fine.

Calling PML-N president Shahbaz Sharif as a "conman", the cricketer-turned-politician said that the PTI has been fighting against corruption in the country in the last 22 years. The party's past five years in power has been punctuated by the civil-military discord that has plagued Pakistan since its inception. The military denied the accusations saying their assistance in carrying out the elections was requested by Pakistan's Election Commission. It plans to place 371,000 soldiers around polling stations so there can a "free and fair" elections, an army spokesperson said this week. The two were in London visiting Sharif's ailing wife when a Pakistani court convicted them of corruption and sent them to prison.

To prevent PML-N workers staging a hero's welcome on the streets, authorities said they would arrest the father and daughter upon landing and transport them to the capital Islamabad by helicopter, local media reported.

Reaching the airport in such large numbers was never really a possibility, but rallying a formidable crowd in the face of an intense official crackdown will bolster Sharif's narrative politically and provide buoyancy to the party's election campaign.

The Sharifs arrived in Pakistan's second city from the United Kingdom on Friday evening, submitting themselves for arrest after they were convicted by an anti-corruption court last week, Geo TV and Dawn newspaper reported.
