Islamabad, Feb 5 (IANS) UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has announced a three-member commission to investigate former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto’s assassination.

Gilani said Pakistan is deeply committed to the vision and charter of the UN.
“We assure full support to the UN for its various programmes underway in different parts of the world for the cause of establishing peace,” he said.
