Opposition leader Benazir Bhutto will not be allowed to hold a protest procession across Pakistan because it will violate a ban on political rallies imposed under the current state of emergency, a government spokesman said Monday. "All processions, rallies, political gatherings at present are outlawed," Deputy Information Minister Tariq Azim told The Associated Press. "So if she breaks the law then obviously she will not be allowed to do it." Bhutto was due to depart from the eastern city of Lahore on Tuesday morning for the capital, Islamabad. The journey was expected to take about three days, and her party said thousands of supporters were expected to join her en route.
