ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) -- Pakistan's opposition leader Benazir Bhutto won't be allowed to hold a cross-country protest against the country's military rule.
A government official says all processions, rallies and political gatherings are banned under the current state of emergency. He says if Bhutto "breaks the law then obviously she will not be allowed to do it."
She was planning to leave from the eastern city of Lahore tomorrow morning for the capital Islamabad. The journey was expected to take about three days, and her party says thousands of supporters were expected to join her en route.
