A UN commission will begin a six-month investigation on July 1 into the assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, the UN announced Friday. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon informed Bhutto's husband, Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari, that the United Nations "is committed to assisting Pakistan by determining the facts and circumstances of her death," UN spokeswoman Michele Montas said. Bhutto was killed in a Dec. 27, 2007 gun-and-suicide bomb attack as she was leaving a rally in the garrison town of Rawalpindi, where she was campaigning to return her Pakistan People's Party to power in parliamentary elections. The three-member commission will be led by Chile's U.N. Ambassador Heraldo Munoz, a dissident during the dictatorship of Gen. Augusto Pinochet who heads the UN Peacebuilding Commission, Montas said.
