Pakistan confirms Benazir under house arrest

Fri, Nov 9th, 2007 1:55 pm BdST
ISLAMABAD, Nov 9 (bdnews24.com/Reuters) - Pakistani authorities detained opposition leader Benazir Bhutto at her home on Friday to stop her from holding her first rally since President Pervez Musharraf imposed emergency rule, a government minister said.

"She has been detained at home. This is temporary and is being done to stop her from going to the meeting," Railways Minister and close ally to Musharraf, Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, told Reuters.

Earlier, Pakistani police placed Benazir under virtual house arrest, a spokeswoman said, to stop her from holding her first rally.
