Mystery of Benazir's murder

3 days passed, but still Benazir's murder is in mystery. A militant group said yesterday it had no link to Benazir Bhutto's killing, dismissing government claims as a bitter dispute erupted over how the opposition leader was killed.
A close aide to Benazir Bhutto told AFP Saturday she saw a bullet wound in the Pakistani opposition leader's head when she bathed her body after her assassination.
Benazir's spokeswoman Sherry Rehman, who said she was in the former premier's motorcade at the time of the gun and suicide attack, rejected government claims that the death was caused when Benazir Bhutto's head hit her sunroof.
"I was actually part of the party which bathed her body before the funeral," said Rehman, who added that her car was used to transport Benazir to hospital.
"There was a bullet wound I saw that went in from the back of her head and came out the other side.
"We could not even wash her properly because the wound was still seeping. She lost a huge amount of blood."
Rehman accused the government of mounting a cover-up over Benazir's death.

The clip conveys such on this humor:

But the government challenged the cover-up claim saying the Pakistani government would let the body of Benazir be exhumed for inquiry if her party requested it, interior ministry spokesman Brigadier Javed Cheema said on Saturday.
"We do not require the assistance of the international community," he said when asked about calls for an outside probe into her assassination, which has plunged the nuclear-armed Islamic nation deeper into turmoil.
