Albania's King Leka I returned home Saturday after 58 years in exile and told the people of the violence-plagued Balkan state that restoration of the monarchy could unify the country. Speaking at a news conference shortly after landing to a loud welcome from supporters in a country he left as an infant, Leka said he would start work immediately on getting Albania's emergency all-party government to agree on a referendum on the monarchy.

The exiled monarch of Albania has been arrested on charges of possessing illegal weapons after police found an arsenal of arms and explosives in the would-be king's home north of Johannesburg, South African officials said Saturday. Leka Zogu, who was rebuffed in an effort two years ago to restore the monarchy in his troubled homeland, was among four foreigners taken into custody Friday night at his walled estate in suburban Fourways, said officials speaking on condition of anonymity.
