Bhutto Visits Blast Site

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- In an emotional visit to the site of the savage bombing of a passenger bus that killed 40 people, Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto on Monday declared a war against terrorism.


Ms. Bhutto called the culprits "cowards'' and urged the nation "to forge complete unity to crush them." No one has claimed responsibility, and authorities have not completed an investigation.


The bus, packed with Moslems heading home to celebrate Islam's most sacred holiday, exploded Sunday in the marketplace of Bhai Pheru, a tiny town 25 kilometers east of Lahore.
