Zardari in London; "The News" confirms a Comment

A regular commenter on this site, one "captainjohann, " signposted a meeting between President Zardari and the MQM leader Altaf Hussain who lives in exile in London during the President's three-day visit to the capital. The News is confirming the story, providing detail and background.

ISLAMABAD: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain is likely to meet President Asif Ali Zardari in London today (Thursday) to discuss with him, among other issues, a possible probe into the 1992 action against the MQM during the PML-N rule, The News learnt here on Wednesday. The meeting between the two key political players is taking place on the heels of a startling disclosure by former Intelligence Bureau boss Brig Imtiaz the other day that the Jinnahpur map issue was merely a drama to malign the MQM...

MQM’s Media Coordinator Zahid Malik, when contacted, told this correspondent that the Quaid-e-Tehreek would like to get President Zardari’s backing for the formation of a panel to investigate the military action against the MQM in 1992.
