Bhutto threatens Musharraf with ‘long march’

Islamabad, November 7, 2007

Former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto said Pakistani opposition supporters will begin a long march from Lahore on November 13 unless President Pervez Musharraf quits the army.

Bhutto threw down the gauntlet to army chief Musharraf after consulting with other opposition leaders over strategy to make him abandon emergency rule, which he invoked on Nov 3.

"If demands are not met by November 9, we'll start a long march from Lahore on November 13 and then we will stage a sit-in in Islamabad," Bhutto told a news conference.Reuters
