RAWALPINDI, Pakistan -- Three more British experts have arrived in Rawalpindi to join the team assisting Pakistani authorities in the investigation of Benazir Bhutto's assassination.

One of the new detectives is said to be an expert on explosives used in the bombing and shooting attack Dec. 27 at a political rally in Rawalpindi, which killed the former prime minister, Dawn reported.

The original five-member British Scotland Yard team was brought in after intense criticism of the government of Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf for issuing conflicting statements on how Bhutto died.

The team's work so far has included collecting forensic evidence, reconstructing the crime scene, and interviewing witnesses and the medical team which tried to revive Bhutto after the attack, the report said.

"There is no breakthrough yet," a senior Pakistani investigator was quoted as saying.
