Pakistan's top diplomat says the United Nations will create an international commission to investigate the killing of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi told reporters Thursday that UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon agreed to his nation's request and will appoint "well-respected, eminent people" to the commission. Qureshi he believed Ban had authority to set up a commission without the UN Security Council's approval. Bhutto's died in a gun-and-suicide bomb attack on Dec. 27 as she left an election rally in the city of Rawalpindi. Her death shocked the world and Pakistan, fanning revulsion at rising militant violence and conspiracy theories that Pakistan's powerful spy agencies were involved.
