Asif Ali Zardari on late Wednesday returned to Islamabad, a city that he left abruptly Dec 6 to fly to Dubai triggering speculations of a coup.

Zardari had been admitted at a Dubai hospital for what officials described as a heart ailment. Reports on his health ranged from the president suffering a heart attack to his suffering a stroke that caused bleeding in his brain and facial paralysis.

The president arrived back in the country Sunday night at the port city of Karachi, putting to rest coup rumours.

President's spokesperson Farhatullah Babar said that Zardari reached Islamabad from Karachi Wednesday night, reported Associated Press of Pakistan.
