India suspends bus, rail services to Pakistan

NEW DELHI: India has suspended railway and bus services to and from Pakistan in the wake of the assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. Officials in New Delhi did not say when the service would be restored. Authorities are concerned that violence by angry Bhutto supporters in Pakistan will spill across the border into India. Militants have targeted trains in the past, including the fatal firebombing of a Pakistan-bound train in India earlier this year. Sixty-eight people were killed in that February attack.-SANA
