The Pakistani Authorities Freed Benazir Bhutto From House Arrest Last Weekend



Puja Bharwani reports.

The Pakistani authorities have freed opposition leader Benazir Bhutto from house arrest hours before a caretaker prime minister was sworn in to oversee elections.
Bhutto's release was welcomed in Washington. U.S. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said other political detainees should also be freed.
In a separate development, Musharraf swore in an ally as caretaker prime minister -- Senate Chairman Mohammadmian Soomro -- and a 24-member cabinet to oversee the parliamentary elections due by Jan. 9.

Nicole,
When I saw your username, I thught you could be my missing German muse Nicole Walter.

America is fighting terrorism in the Middle East and environs. Osama bin Laden and his foot soldiers have set up camps or cells in Pakistan. Remember that the Al Qaida has boothcamps in Pakistan and the terrorist suicide bombers who masterminded the terrorist bombings in London on July 7, 2005, were trained in Pakistan.

Let me read the blog you have noted.

God bless.
