Islamabad: The seventh death anniversary of former prime minister and ex-Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Benazir Bhutto is being observed across Pakistan Saturday, a media report said.

Her husband and former president Asif Ali Zardari will preside over the main ceremony at Benazir's hometown of Larkana in Sindh province, Dawn reported.

PPP co-chairman and her husband Asif Ali Zardari arrived in Larkana Friday along with their daughter Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari and Sherry Rahman, former Pakistan ambassador to the US, to participate in the commemoration ceremony.
