Opposition leader Benazir Bhutto gave birth Wednesday to a baby boy and the two were reported in good condition, her family and hospital sources said.
Bhutto gave birth at 9:30 a.m. by Caesarean section at the Lady Dufferin Hospital in Pakistan's southern port of Karachi, Bhutto's mother said in a statement.Bhutto's family had previously indicated the baby was due in November. The birth was apparently not premature.
Bhutto returned to Pakistan from political exile in Britain in April 1986 and rallied enormous crowds with her demands for national elections. She was married Dec. 18, 1987, to Pakistani businessman Asef Ali Zardari.
Hospital sources said Bhutto, 35, and her son were in good health. She was brought to the government facility late Tuesday.
Bhutto, leader of the opposition Pakistan People's Party, is the daughter of the Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, the former prime minister who was overthrown in a coup in 1977.
