Lahore (Pakistan), Nov 16: Pakistan's government has lifted a house arrest order imposed on opposition leader Benazir Bhutto to prevent her from leading a rally against President Pervez Musharraf's emergency rule, police said early today.

''The government has withdrawn Bhutto's detention order, and from now, she is free to move wherever she likes,'' Aftab Cheema, police chief of the eastern city of Lahore, told Reuters.

''Police will remain (outside) for her security, but there will be no restriction on her movement.''
