Bhutto death said caused by head injury
by UPI

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto died from hitting her head after a bomb blast and not from a gunshot wound, a Scotland Yard team concluded.

The finding, which backs the government version of what happened in the Dec. 27 assassination of the former Pakistani prime minister, was immediately rejected by Bhutto's Pakistan People's Party, which called for an independent U.N. investigation into the killing.

"In my opinion Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto died as a result of a severe head injury sustained as a consequence of the bomb blast and due to head impact somewhere in the escape hatch of the vehicle," Dr. Nathaniel Cary, a British Home Office pathologist said in the report.

That supported Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf's statement on the opposition leader's death.

Bhutto's family and political supporters meanwhile planned to resume campaigning for the Feb. 18 parliamentary elections now that a 40-day period of mourning has ended.
