The seventh death anniversary of former prime minister and ex-Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Benazir Bhutto is being observed across Pakistan Saturday, a media report said.

Her husband and former president Asif Ali Zardari will preside over the main ceremony at Benazir's hometown of Larkana in Sindh province, Dawn reported.

PPP co-chairman and her husband Asif Ali Zardari arrived in Larkana Friday along with their son Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari and daughter Sherry Rahman to participate in the commemoration ceremony.
