Benazir Killing : UN rejects independent investigation

United Nations, July 9

The United Nations has rejected reopening of the independent probe into the assassination of former Pakistan Premier Benazir Bhutto as the the work is "complete", but UN Chief Ban ki-Moon will respond to objections raised by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi.

"We're working on the reply," Farhan Haq, Associate spokesperson for the UN Secretary General, told reporters, in response to a question about Ban's reaction to the letter written by Qureshi.

Haq, however, pointed out that Moon was of the view that "the work of the Commission is complete." Bhutto was killed on December 27, 2007 when a suicide bomber exploded himself close to her car in Rawalpindi while campaigning for the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) in parliamentary and provincial elections.
