Benazir Bhutto burried in Larkana

Benazir Bhuttos' coffinSlain Pakistan leader Benazir Bhutto has been laid to rest in ancestral graveyard in Larkana, near her father’s grave.

Her supporters gathered in large numbers to pay last respect to their beloved leader.

Earlier, the funeral procession for slain Pakistan opposition leader Benazir Bhutto was held in southern Sindh on Friday afternoon.

The body of assassinated former premier Benazir Bhutto was flown to her ancestral village in Pakistan’s Sindh province on Friday morning, where hundreds of her supporters converged to attend the funeral following a night of violent protests across the country against her killing.

The body was flown in a military aircraft from Rawalpindi’s Chaklala airbase to Sukkur, from where it was ferried by a helicopter to Mohenjodaro, near her ancestral home at Naudero village.

Bhutto’s husband Asif Ali Zardari and their three children — son Bilawal and daughters Bakhtawar and Asifa, who flew in from Dubai last evening, accompanied the coffin from Rawalpindi.

The former prime minister’s estranged sister-in-law Ghinwa Bhutto and niece Fatima too joined the family in mourning at her native village.
