    Bhutto book


    Bhutto had named Akhtar as a suspect in the Karachi bombing in a book she had finished writing before her death.


    Akhtar was arrested in February in connection with the deadly double suicide attack.


    Though Bhutto survived the attack, at least 150 others died.


    Akhtar was the one-time head of Harkat Jihad-e-Islami, a group supporting Afghanistan's Taliban movement.


    He spent most of his time before 2004 living in Afghanistan and during that period he met Osama bin Laden, the al-Qaeda chief, several times, security officials said.
