LONDON – Benazir Bhutto's son opened a London donation point Saturday for victims of Pakistan's deadly floods — a public appearance that came amid criticism that his father, Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari, was in Britain when he should have been dealing with the one of worst disasters in his country in decades.

Appearing defensive when faced with a volley of questions about criticism of his father's trip, Bhutto Zardari said people should leave politics out of the picture and accept that Zardari is doing his part raising funds overseas.

"This is not a time to play politics. We need to do what is necessary to help our brothers and sisters in Pakistan," he told reporters. "My father's doing all that he can to aid the people of Pakistan. His personal presence in Pakistan could not have done there what he did here."
