United Nations, Nov 19: The UN commission probing into the assassination of former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto has questioned former President Pervez Musharraf, a spokesperson of Secretary General's office said.

"The Commission of Inquiry says that it had a frank, open and cordial conversation with former President Musharraf, having been able to pose to him many queries on issues central to its mandate," the spokesperson said.

"While the UN did not reveal the location of the meeting," Musharraf's spokesperson Nasim Ashraf said, adding that the meeting took place in Philadelphia on Oct 27.

"While I met the team, I strongly oppose any international probe into Pakistan's domestic affairs," Dawn newspaper quoted Musharraf as saying.

Bhutto was killed in a gun and bomb attack at a rally in the garrison town of Rawalpindi in Dec 2007 while campaigning for parliamentary elections.
