Pakistani detectives have identified former prime minister Benazir Bhutto's assassin, a private television channel reported Tuesday, even as the Scotland Yard team probing last month's assassination met President Pervez Musharraf.
"The identity of the gunman who fired shots on Bhutto has been traced by the Pakistani detectives with the help of the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA)," ARY television said in its news bulletin quoting unnamed sources.
The report said police had raided the house of the suspected killer in Swabi, a town in the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) bordering Afghanistan, and arrested "a few persons".
