Nearly a decade after her assassination, the murder trial of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto has ended. But the controversial case may have failed to bring closure, with no firm answers on who was responsible for her death. Five suspected Taliban members were acquitted due to lack of evidence on Thursday. And ex-president and military leader Pervez Musharraf -- who lives in exile in Dubai -- was labeled a fugitive for not turning up in court. Musharraf was charged with conspiracy to murder in 2013 -- an accusation he denies. So far, a guilty verdict has been delivered just to two policemen.
