El informe de Scotland Yard sobre el asesinato de Bhutto

Filed under: Al-Qaeda,Gran Bretaña/GB,Pakistan,terrorism,terrorismo,UK — Nora @ 9:34 pm

British detectives investigating the death of ex-Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto say she died from the effect of a bomb blast, not gunfire.Detectives from Scotland Yard were asked by Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf to examine the circumstances surrounding Bhutto’s death in December.

Scotland Yard’s account matches that of the Pakistani authorities. But Bhutto’s party has insisted she was shot by an assassin, and has accused the government of a cover-up.The BBC’s Aamer Ahmed Khan says the exact cause of death may help shed light on who was behind the attack.

Ms Bhutto’s Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has suggested that if sophisticated weaponry were used it could indicate the involvement of elements of the security establishment.

TV pictures that emerged after Bhutto’s death on 27 December appeared to show a gunman aiming a weapon at the Pakistani opposition leader as she stood through the escape hatch of a vehicle during a rally in Rawalpindi.The UK police report confirmed that shots were fired – but said they were not the cause of death.It said after discharging his firearm the attacker had detonated explosives, blowing himself up.

“The blast caused a violent collision between her head and the escape hatch area of the vehicle, causing a severe and fatal head injury,” said the report, signed by Detective Superintendent John MacBrayne.The report said the evidence suggested there was only one attacker, not two, as had been speculated.

So, this would be consistent with Bin Laden’s son killing Bhutto, as Al-Qaeda has done a lot of suicide attacks. It would also back the possibility of Bhutto’s being killed because she said that Bin Laden has been killed by Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh – one of those convicted of kidnapping and killing U.S. journalist Daniel Pearl. As AQ first symbol, they would lose a lot of “moral” strength if he had been killed b a colleague, and not because of US millitary strikes.

Scotland Yard ha publicado el informe sobre el asesinato de Benazir Bhutto. En él, se determina que hubo disparos, pero que no fueron la causa de su muerte, si no que esta se produjo cuando el atacante detonó los explosivos, suicidándose. Esto confirma la versión del Gobierno paquistaní y es contraria a la versión mantenida por el partido de Bhutto, que afirma que fue tiroteada por un asesino y que el Gobierno Mussharraf ha apoyado de alguna manera la actividad de los asesinos.

En todo caso, esto podría probar el que Benazir Bhutto fuera asesinada por el hijo de Bin Laden, puesto que Al-Qaeda seguramente es el grupo terrorista que más atentados suicidas ha realizado (con la excepción quizás de los Tigres Tamiles de Sri Lanka, los verdaderos descubridores de esta forma de matar). Incluso probaría el que la causa de su muerte fuera que Bhutto anunció en una entrevista a la cadena Al-Jazeera que Bin Laden había sido asesinado por Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, uno de los que están condenados por secuestrar y matar al periodista americano Daniel Pearl. Como el primer símbolo de AQ, sería algo bastante poco “honorable” haber sido asesinado por un colega en la lucha por el Califato Islámico en lugar de por los bombardeos americanos.
