BENAZIR Bhutto died of a “severe head injury” and not a gunshot wound in an attack by a lone terrorist, Scotland Yard said today.

British detectives investigating the death of the former Pakistani prime minister have presented their report to the Pakistani authorities, which was released by the Foreign Office today.

The report concluded that Ms Bhutto's only apparent injury was a major trauma to the right side of the head, caused by hitting the escape hatch to her vehicle and not by a gunshot wound.

All the evidence suggests a lone attacker fired the shots before blowing himself up.
