Islamabad, Nov 9: Former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto today made an attempt to leave her Islamabad home to lead a protest rally against the emergency imposed by President General Pervez Musharraf, but failed in her attempt, as police stopped her.

Bhutto has been put under house arrest since morning as she was going to lead a protest rally in Rawalpindi later in the day.

"She tried to come out of the house. Police turned her back and we are trying to find another way," The News quoted her spokeswoman Naheed Khan, as saying.

All the roads leading to her house have been blocked and there is a huge presence of security forces on the roads.

Bhutto is under house arrest for the first time since her homecoming to Pakistan on October 18, ending her eight years of self-exile.
