ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto returned to her residence in Islamabad after police blocked her way after she tried leaving to attend a rally against President Pervez Musharraf on Friday.

"The government has been paralysed," Bhutto shouted to supporters across a barbed wire barricade using a megaphone. Two buses and an armoured personnel carrier blocked the road outside her house.

"If he restores the constitution, takes off his uniform, gives up the office of the chief of army staff and announces an election by Jan. 15 then it's okay," she said, adding that she would defy Musharraf if he didn't meet her demands.
