Pakistan reports a telephone tap of two militants shows al-Qaeda was behind Thursday's assassination of Benazir Bhutto. The opposition leader died after being attacked at a political rally in Rawalpindi. The government's Interior Minister claims her death was caused by a severe blow to the head when she fell back into her vehicle through the sun roof, causing a fatal skull fracture. Early reports claimed the former Prime Minister was hit with two rifle shots in the neck and chest.
But officials say a transcript of the phone tap has one of the militants praising what he called the "very brave boys" who killed Bhutto. Pakistan's government is vowing to find the persons responsible.
