Benazir Bhutto's son has added his voice to those calling for an independent investigation of his mother's murder.

The Pakistani political leader and former prime minister was assassinated last month as she left a rally.

Her 19-year-old son Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is a student at Oxford but has been named to eventually replace her as head of her political party.

Zardari told a news conference in London today that he does not trust officials in Pakistan and wants an investigation by the United Nations. Zardari says a lot of the forensic evidence in the killing has already been destroyed.

As for his own plans, Zardari says his immediate priority is to continue his studies. But he says politics is in his blood and that while his experience is limited, he intends to learn.
