A three-member U.N. commission arrived in Pakistan on Thursday to conduct an inquiry into the assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

Conspiracy theories abound over who was behind the suicide gun-and-bomb attack that killed Bhutto after an election campaign rally in the city of Rawalpindi on December 27, 2007.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon set up the commission at the request of the coalition government, led by Bhutto’s Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), and it began its inquiry earlier this month.



The previous government, headed by allies of former president and army chief Pervez Musharraf, blamed Pakistani Taliban commander and al Qaeda ally Baitullah Mehsud for Bhutto’s slaying.

The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency also made Mehsud the prime suspect, but the Taliban leader denied the accusation from his redoubt in the mountains of Waziristan, a remote tribal region bordering Afghanistan.
