Detained opposition leader Benazir Bhutto told The AP on Thursday that Washington is concerned about a power-vacuum in Pakistan if President Gen. Pervez Musharraf is forced to leave office, but said she told a visiting US diplomat that she could not work with the general.
Bhutto made the comment in a telephone interview from the home in Lahore where she is under house arrest, shortly after a visit from Bryan Hunt, the US consul general in the eastern Pakistani city.
"He came to find out whether I could work with Gen. Musharraf, and I told him that it was very difficult to work with someone who instead of taking us toward democracy took us back toward military dictatorship," she said.
