Charges filed in the Bhutto killing

From the AP.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Pakistani police on Saturday formally accused the top Taliban leader in the country and four others of planning the assassination of opposition leader Benazir Bhutto.
Police filed preliminary charges in court against Baitullah Mehsud, who had been named by the Pakistani government in the Dec. 27 killing of Bhutto in a homicide and gun attack during a public rally. Mehsud, alleged to have Al Qaeda connections, is underground and it is not clear if the police are anywhere close to catching him.
