Pakistan says UN will investigate Bhutto killing
Pakistan's top diplomat says the United Nations will create an international commission to investigate the killing of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, AP reported.
Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi told reporters Thursday that UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon agreed to his nation's request and will appoint "well-respected, eminent people" to the commission.
Qureshi says he believes Ban has authority to set up a commission without the UN Security Council's approval.
Bhutto died in a gun and suicide bomb attack on Dec. 27 as she left an election rally.
Her death shocked the world and Pakistan, fanning revulsion at rising militant violence and theories that Pakistan's powerful spy agencies were involved.
