Benazir Bhutto Is Permitted to Leave Home
Finally, a democratic change is in the wind for Pakistan.....
The Pakistani police allowed the opposition leader Benazir Bhutto to leave her home on Saturday, and she carried out a brief protest in front of the home of the ousted chief justice.
Bhutto, a former prime minister, also visited a group of journalists protesting a government shutdown of independent television stations and said she would attend a reception for the diplomatic corps given by her party at the Parliament building.
The flurry of activity came a day after the police blocked Bhutto from leaving her home in Islamabad to attend an opposition rally in the nearby city of Rawalpindi. At the site of the planned protest, more than 8,000 police officers blocked her supporters from gathering.
