Bhutto was killed by Suicide Bomb : Scotland Yard

The Scotland Yard team, investigating the killing of Benazir Bhutto, former Prime Minister of Pakistan, backed the Pakistani Government’s claim that Benazir Bhutto was not shot, but died after a suicide bomb blast smashed her head against the roof of her armoured vehicle.

The team from the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command also concluded that the former Prime Minister and opposition leader was killed by a lone assassin, instead of two, as many Pakistanis believe.

It did not say who was behind her assassination, and its findings were disputed immediately by Ms Bhutto’s aides, who blame the Pakistani Government for her death and want the United Nations to start an investigation.

The findings were released in Islamabad, the Pakistani capital. “In essence, all the evidence indicates that one suspect has fired the shots before detonating an improvised explosive device,” Detective Superintendent John MacBrayne, who led the team, wrote in a summary of the report. Link
