Bhutto to Appeal

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan () -- Former Pakistan prime minister Benazir Bhutto is to file a writ with the Supreme Court next week against her dismissal four days ago, sources close to the deposed leader said Saturday.

Bhutto, who has vowed to fight a legal battle against her abrupt sacking by President Farooq Ahmed Leghari on Tuesday, has been holding consultations with legal aides at her former official residence here.

Leghari sacked Bhutto and dissolved the National Assembly, citing corruption, misrule and lawlessness resulting in thousands of deaths during her three-year government among the reasons for his drastic action.
