Bhutto acquitted

LAHORE - Benazir Bhutto, Pakistan's Prime Minister, was acquitted by a special court yesterday in a case of alleged misconduct during her first 20-month stint as prime minister. The case, in which she was accused of allotting control of liquified gas distribution agencies to favoured colleagues, was brought against her by former President Ghulam Ishaq Khan, after he dismissed her government in August 1990.
