ISLAMABAD:Govt of Pakistan has decide to issue coin of 10-rupees at first anniversary of Benazir in honor of Ex chairperson Benazir Bhutho in Pakistan. It is decided by Govt of Pakistan.

The State Bank of Pakistan will issue about 300,000 of the commemorative coins bearing Bhutto’s portrait and inscribed with the phrase “Daughter of the East — Honourable Benazir Bhutto” in Urdu, it said in a statement.

Bhutto was assassinated in a suicide attack in Rawalpindi on December 27 after addressing an election rally, just two months after surviving a strike on her homecoming parade in Karachi.

The government has renamed Islamabad’s international airport after the two-time former premier, as well as a main road and hospital in Rawalpindi.
