Senior Pakistani Official Says Scotland Yard Won't Have Much To Do In Bhutto Investigation

I think I've read about a million words today and none of them have made as much sense as this short report, from AFP via Dawn:

Benazir’s assassination: Scotland Yard may find little to do in Pakistan
ISLAMABAD, Jan 3 (AFP) - Scotland Yard's investigators may not have much to work with in the assassination of Benazir Bhutto in Pakistan, leading to an inquiry that raises more questions than answers, analysts say.

A senior government official, who could not be named due to the sensitivity of the issue, said there might not be much the Scotland Yard team can do.

“They will come here and ask for two things. Do you have a post-mortem report? Do you know the cause of death? They will ask for a detailed post-mortem report -- and we don't have any,” the official said. “I seriously do not think there is anything for them to investigate.”
Here we see the benefit of hosing down the crime scene immediately ... and calling in some friendly investigators a week later.
