Bhutto I
RAWALPINDI, Pakistan (AP) -
Rioting and demonstrations erupted
here and in the neighboring Indian state
of Kashmir yesterday, protesting the
hanging of former Prinde Minister
Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. World leaders, who
had tried to saveim from the gallows,
expressed regre and anger fat the
Three persons were reported killed in
the Kashmir riots. Most of Pakistan
was calm, but some observers said
violence could come later.
IN WASHINGTON, the State Depar-
tment expressed regret over the
execution. Spokesman Hodding Carter
noted that President Carter had asked
for mercy for Bhutto on humanitarian*
grounds. A department official said
privately that the President's plea was
based in part on fears of political
violence after the hanging.
The white-shrouded body of the 51-
year-old Bhutto, who led Pakistan from
1971 until he was ousted in 1977 by the
man who refused to commute his sen-
tence, was flown by military helicopter
to his birthplace. It was buried in the
family graveyard eight hours after the
Bhutto, convicted of ordering the
murder of a political opponent was
taken from his tiny death-row cell and
hanged at 2 a.m. President Mohammed
Zia ul-Raq, who. installed a strict
Moslem penal code when he toppled
Bhutto, refused a flood of pleas to
commute Bhutto's sentence. ,
Bhutto refused to ask for mercy,
saying to do so would be an admission
of guilt.
POLICE SAID that besides the three
dead, seven persons were injured in the
demonstrations in Kashmir, which bor-
ders Pakistan and has a heavy pro-
Pakistan Moslem majority. Many
Kashmiris identify more with Pakistan
than with India.
Police opened fire on demonstrators
who stoned the U.N. observer post in
the Kashmiri city of Srinagar. Bhutto
and most Kashmiris favored self-
determination for Kashmir, a province
claimed by both India and Pakistan.
