ISLAMABAD, Nov 10 (Reuters) Pakistani police blocked opposition leader Benazir Bhutto today from visiting the country's deposed chief justice at his home, where he has been confined since emergency rule was imposed a week ago, witnesses said.

Bhutto, who herself was kept under house arrest for most of Friday, tried to approach former chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhry's home, but police parked two trucks on the road to block her path.

After imposing emergency rule and suspending the constitution a week ago citing a hostile judiciary and rising militancy, Musharraf sacked most of the country's judges and has since replaced them.
