Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto has been served with a temporary detention notice, BBC reported.

The move came as she tried to leave her Islamabad home, which has been blocked off by police to stop her joining a planned rally in nearby Rawalpindi.

Police in the city clashed with Bhutto's supporters defying a ban on rallies imposed under emergency rule.

Bhutto has vowed to wage a campaign aimed at forcing President Pervez Musharraf to stand down as army chief.

The three-day detention order was served on the former prime minister after she tried to cross the heavy police cordon set up outside her residence on Friday.
