Bhutto's party rejects 'meaningless' Scotland Yard probe

Jan 4 (AFP) - A Scotland Yard team that arrived in Pakistan on Friday to help investigate the assassination of opposition leader Benazir Bhutto will fail to shed any light on the murder, her party said. “This Scotland Yard team... what will it do here? It will work under the patronage of the government. It is going to be a meaningless exercise,” said Farooq Naik, a lawyer and Benazir’s top aide. “We reject it, we will not join it,” Naik said. “An international investigation commission should be set up, appointed by the UN and answerable to the UN and nobody else,” he said.
