“Scotland Yard strengthened its team aiding the probe into the assassination of Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto on Wednesday as concerns for the country’s nuclear security grew.Three more detectives arrived from London, including an expert in the type of explosives used in the gun and suicide bomb attack which killed Bhutto and nearly two dozen of her supporters at a rally in Rawalpindi on December 27.

The first batch of British anti-terrorism detectives arrived last week following an invitation from President Pervez Musharraf, who had admitted Pakistani investigators had made mistakes in the initial probe of the murder.” (Agence France-Presse)
