Pakistan has asked the United Nations to include information from three "friendly countries" in its report on the 2007 assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, delaying the release. "We have requested the UN inquiry commission to include views of these countries that had warned Bhutto of an attempt to murder her if she came to Pakistan," said Farhatullah Babar, a spokesman for President Asif Ali Zardari, Bhutto's widower, in a phone interview WITH Bloomberg on Wednesday. The report by an independent panel was to have been released yesterday. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon received a request from Zardari to delay the report until April 15, UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said in New York. "We want those warnings by these countries to be part of the report. One country has already shared its information with the UN," Babar said, without identifying any of the governments that offered intelligence. Bhutto, a two-time prime minister, was killed in a suicide bombing at a rally of her Pakistan Peoples Party in Rawalpindi on Dec. 27, 2007. Zardari was elected president in 2008. Zardari pressed for a UN probe even after London's Metropolitan Police said its investigation showed Bhutto died from a head injury sustained when the force of the blast threw her against her vehicle's sunroof. The report rejected allegations that she was shot dead. No autopsy was performed on Bhutto's body, and the crime scene was cleaned shortly after her death, prompting suspicions of a cover-up and Zardari's demand for the UN investigation. The government last year asked Ban to "establish an international commission for the purpose of identifying the culprits, perpetrators, organizers and financiers behind the assassination of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto with a view to bring them to justice." Ban decided instead on a "fact-finding" panel. Nesirky said he was looking into reports that UN offices in Pakistan had been ordered to shut for fear the report's release could provoke retaliation
