The UN Security Council on Monday strongly condemned last week's suicide attack on Pakistan opposition leader Benazir Bhutto's homecoming procession as a "heinous act of terrorism" and urged all countries to cooperate in bringing the perpetrators to justice. In a statement read at a formal meeting, the council reiterated its determination to combat all forms of terrorism and reaffirmed that terrorism constitutes "one of the most serious threats to international peace and security." The Thursday night bombing of Bhutto's cavalcade in Karachi, hours after she returned from eight years in exile, killed 136 people, wounded hundreds more, and raised the question of whether campaign rallies would be allowed ahead of upcoming parliamentary elections.
