Pakistan court issues warrants over Bhutto’s death
Pakistan court issues warrants for 2 police officers accused of negligence in Bhutto’s killing.
A Pakistani court has issued arrest warrants for two police officials accused of failing to provide proper security for former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto on the day she was assassinated. They are also accused of cleaning the crime scene before evidence could be collected.
Prosecutor Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali identified the men Sunday as former Rawalpindi police chief Saud Aziz and Superintendent Khurram Shahzad.
Ali said the two could be arrested at any time. The officials could not be reached for comment.
Bhutto was killed in 2007 just weeks after returning to the country from self-imposed exile.
A U.N. commission in April said her assassination could have been prevented. It blamed all levels of government for failing to provide adequate security.
