No need for int'l help in Bhutto probe: Pakistan

world Updated: Dec 29, 2007 21:31 IST

Pakistan's interior ministry said Saturday that the international community "does not understand the environment" in the country, ruling out international help in probing Benazir Bhutto's death.

With questions raised about the official account of how she died, which has been rejected by Bhutto's aides and supporters, ministry spokesman Brigadier Javed Cheema said the Pakistan government had told the truth.

"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.
