Pakistanis hold candles during a ceremony for Benazir Bhutto in Lahore, Pakistan, to mark the end of the 40-day mourning period for her on Thursday.

A delegate from Scotland Yard releases a report of its investigation into the assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto on Friday. The findings echo those of the Pakistan government: that she was killed by the force of the suicide blast, not by a gunshot wound.

The report is unlikely to dampen speculation that the government was somehow involved in Bhutto's death.
