Musharraf: Bhutto bears responsibility for her own death

Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has said that Benazir Bhutto bears responsibility for her own death, because she put herself in danger.

Mr Musharraf made the comments in an interview on American television.

He conceded that a gunman may have shot the opposition leader in Rawalpindi ten days ago, but insists his government did everything possible to protect her.

The government initially maintained that the opposition leader died from a fractured skull received after a bomb was detonated, despite eyewitness accounts that she was first shot.
