Scotland Yard’s report into the murder of Pakistan’s former prime minister Benazir Bhutto is likely to fuel, rather than settle, the controversies surrounding the issue.

British investigators said on Friday they believed Ms Bhutto was killed by the bomb blast and not a bullet.

They also said there was possibly only one assassin and not a group who carried out the attack.

Ms Bhutto’s Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) says it will give a detailed response to Scotland Yard’s report after its lawyers and the central executive committee have debated it.

But the initial response from party members suggest that is unlikely that the party will be satisfied with what the British sleuths have come up with.

The inquiry report’s findings have come as a bit of a shock for many Pakistanis. A number of amateur videos of the assassination, some made with cell phones, have been aired on local TV channels since 27 December last year when Ms Bhutto was brought down.

Some of then clearly show that she had fallen inside the vehicle a few seconds before the suicide bomber blew himself up.
