Stop selling this book or....

From Levine Breaking News:

***A lawyer for an alleged al-Qaida-linked militant said Wednesday that he asked a court to halt the sale of a book by slain ex-Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto that he claims defames his client.

Bhutto's allegations in "Reconciliation: Islam, Democracy & the West" that Qari Saifullah Akhtar was involved in an October bombing in Karachi that killed some 150 people are "baseless," attorney Hashmat Habib said.

Habib said he is also seeking more than $200 million in damages from the British publishers of Bhutto's book, Simon & Schuster, printers, sellers, and her widowed husband Asif Ali Zardari as her heir and "beneficiary."
