Former Pakistani PM Benazir Bhutto accused government officials of blocking the investigation into the attack on her last week that killed 140 supporters, reports the Washington Post. Bhutto demanded that international experts be brought into the probe because "there are very powerful figures behind the assassination attempt on me," she said. The government has so far declined to ask for international help.
Bhutto claims that elements of the Pakistani military as well as Islamic fundamentalists were behind the attempt. Officials have dismissed the accusation. A Western diplomat said it's too early to determine who was responsible. "The Pakistanis are doing their thing," he said. "Is it a 'CSI'? Not quite. Nevertheless, they have their procedures."
