Pakistan on Thursday said that it would soon send an application to the United Nations for investigation into the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

"We have got the letter ready after the discussions between the foreign ministry and law ministry," said Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi at a press conference.

Law Minister Farooq Naek, who co-chaired the press conference, said the letter will be sent to U.N. secretary-general soon.

Bhutto, also former leader of the Pakistan People's Party (PPP),was killed in a gun and bomb attack last December while attending a political rally.

President Pervez Musharraf asked for a Scotland Yard team to join in the investigation after Bhutto was killed.

But Naek said the Scotland Yard team was given "limited mandate" during their probe.

"They were given the mandate to investigate whether it's a murder, but not to investigate who are the persons behind the hideous crime." Naek said.
