Pakistan, UN To Investigate Bhutto Murder

Pakistan and the United Nations have agreed in principle to set up a UN panel to investigate the killing of Pakistani ex-PM Benazir Bhutto.

Pakistan and the United Nations are likely agreed to set up a UN panel to investigate the killing of Pakistani ex-PM Benazir Bhutto last December.

Pakistan's foreign minister said UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon had agreed to his government's request for such an investigation.

Five people have been arrested in connection with the killing, but no one has been convicted.

Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Mr Ban had asked for further consultation with Pakistan and UN officials but that a "broad understanding" had been reached on the nature of the commission, its funding, access to information and ways to safeguard its impartiality and independence.
