Pakistan Charges Police in Bhutto Murder

Pakistan has filed charges in the murder of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. An anti-terrorism court in Pakistan claims two senior police officers and five alleged Taliban militants were responsible for Bhutto's assassination after she made a dramatic return from exile to run for electionin 2007. The police officers—including the chief of police at the time in Rawalpindi, where Bhutto was killed—were charged with security breaches and failing to protect Bhutto. Bhutto was killed in a gun and bomb attack while campaigning in an election that was ultimately won by her husband, the current Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari.
