Rawalpindi, Jul 14: Two officials of the United Nations technical assessment team paid a surprise visit to the spot in Liaquat Bagh where former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in a gun and bomb attack on Dec 27, 2007.

A senior police official on Monday, Jul 13 said that the UN officials visited Liaquat Bagh to assess the security arrangements in the area and its surroundings, in order to ensure foolproof arrangements for members of the UN Commission due to arrive in Pakistan to probe Benazir's murder.

More than 15 anti-terrorist squad vans, Capital City Police and other security agencies were guarding the officials, the Daily Times quoted the police, as saying.

The UN spokeswoman Michele Montas said that the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has told Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari, Bhutto's husband, that the UN is committed to help Islamabad to bring the perpetrators to justice as soon as possible.

"Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon informed Bhutto's husband that the United Nations is committed to assisting Pakistan by determining the facts and circumstances of her death," Montas said.
