Paying glowing tribute to PPP Founder Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, she said his steadfastness against dictatorship should be followed by the party at all costs.

The one-page will clearly mentions Asif Ali Zardari as the next chairman of PPP. She wrote that Zardari would lead the party after her.

Earlier addressing a press conference, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari read his mother's will.

Meanwhile, forensic authorities in Rawalpindi are reconstructing the severed head of a suicide bomber found at the site of an attack on a military bus that left seven people dead on Monday.

Police said they hoped to trace those behind Monday's bombing which targeted army medical staff going to work in Rawalpindi.

"We found the head of the suicide attacker and experts are doing a reconstruction of his face. We have several clues but no lead yet," Rawalpindi police chief Saud Aziz, was quoted, as saying.

Chief military spokesman Major General Athar Abbas said the death toll from Monday's bombing had risen to seven overnight, with 40 others wounded including seven civilians.
