President Zardari returns home

President Asif Ali Zardari returned home on Tuesday from official foreign visits.

The floods will cause “major harm to the economy,” the International Monetary Fund said on Monday as donors’ and investors’ concerns grew over the disaster’s impact on an already fragile economy.

The president was in the southern city of Karachi and was due in the capital later in the day. He expected to visit flood-hit areas, government officials said.
