The burial of Benzair Bhutto was today marred by heavy violence across Pakistan as a bitter row broke out over how she died.
As hundreds of thousands mourned the murdered opposition leader, the country's Interior Ministry claimed she had died from hitting her vehicle's sunroof when she tried to duck after a suicide attack.
However, one of Miss Bhutto's aide rejected the government's explanation of her death as a "pack of lies".
Brigadier Javed Cheema, a ministry spokesman, said Miss Bhutto had died from a head wound she sustained when she smashed against the sunroof's lever as she tried to shelter inside the car.
"The lever struck near her right ear and fractured her skull," Mr Cheema said.
But the explanation was ridiculed by Farooq Naik, Miss Bhutto's top lawyer and a senior official in her Pakistan People's Party.
"It is baseless. It is a pack of lies," he said.
"Two bullets hit her, one in the abdomen and one in the head. It was a serious security lapse........"

Sounds like a magic bullet....
Check the grassy knoll.
I think the Pakistanis are making it their mission just to piss me off...I have never seen a people who can't get a story straight.
Black is white...white is black......grrrrrrrrr.
You mean, besides Democrats?
The thing is there is no angle for an abdomen shot. If Bhutto was ducking she would have to pass the handle and hitting her head on that is at least possible.
Not to be worried, madam Senator Clinton has called for an International investigation. The UN guy and the EU guy who got booted from Afghanistan will help Bill Clinton with it.
If I could see your video or photographic evidence of the actual event, just prior to her dropping down inside the vehicle, I might be able to make a comment.
I too have seen images of her sticking out of the sun roof, but that is not an image of the *actual* event where her upper abdomen area might have been exposed.
I find the Paki explanation just as absurd as the Seinfeld scenario.
She was killed by her security detail. (As was a certain president.)
So you know the truth about McKinley.
also another female PM from that part of the world....Indira Gandhi
Sounds like the intended assassin didn’t get the job done, so she was driven away to a secure location where it was done properly.
Or maybe I just need a tin foil hat...
I read that was a bullet proof vehicle....and bomb resistant.
Well, Arlen was in town to meet her yesterday.
No, you're confusing Bhutto with Princess Diana.
However, if you look closely at the photo you provided, under the white object on the roof, possibly the sunroof or some type a light bar, you can clearly see her clothing underneath it, and it would appear her upper abdomen area was exposed.
Her death was inevitable. Perhaps she even wanted it. She seemed to have a martyr complex. All very sad for a very educated woman with a long history in the region.
