China View, April 14, 2008

ISLAMABAD, April 14 (Xinhua) -- The National Assembly on Monday adopted a resolution calling for United Nations (UN) probe into the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, official Associated Press of Pakistan reported.

The resolution, moved by minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Farooq H Naik and adopted unanimously, urged the government to approach the UN for forming an international investigation commission called Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Commission.

The commission should seek to probe and identify the culprits, perpetrators organizers and financiers behind this heinous crime and bring them to justice, said the resolution.

The NA, through the resolution, also mourned the tragic assassination of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto which it said, resulted in colossal loss to the people of Pakistan as well as the world.

Benazir Bhutto was killed in gunshots and suicide blast, which occurred when Benazir was going out of the Liaquat Bagh park after an election rally on Dec. 27 last year.

The Pakistan People's Party, led by Benazir's widower Asif Ali Zardari, has been seeking UN probe into Benazir's death.
