"Pakistani authorities Wednesday arrested two senior police officers for alleged dereliction of duty over the 2007 assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, a prosecutor said. ... A court in Rawalpindi this month issued warrants for the arrest of Saud Aziz, who was city police chief at the time of the killing, and Khurram Shahzad, another senior policeman for their 'failure' to protect Bhutto, Dawn News reported. Both police officers were accused of providing insufficient security to Bhutto and hosing down the crime scene before all the evidence was collected." (12/23/10)
