A technical team that is part of the UN fact-finding commission looking into former premier Benazir Bhutto's assassination arrived in Pakistan today to formally launch the probe.

The six-member team is expected to visit the site at Liaquat Bagh in Rawalpindi where Bhutto was killed in a gun and bomb attack shortly after addressing an election rally in December 2007.

The team will also meet top officials of the interior ministry and review the findings of a Scotland Yard team that had examined the cause of Bhutto's death. Inspector General of Police Kalbe Abbas will assist the UN team.

The three-member UN commission is headed by Chile's UN Ambassador Heraldo Munoz. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon announced the formation of the commission during a visit to Pakistan in February.
