Benazir BhuttoI have no words for it. The BBC reports:

Pakistani former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto has been killed in a presumed suicide attack, a spokesman for the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) says.

Other reports said Ms Bhutto had only been injured and taken to hospital. Ms Bhutto had just addressed a rally of PPP supporters in the town of Rawalpindi when the rally was hit by a blast. At least 15 other people are reported killed in the attack. Ms Bhutto has twice been the country’s prime minister and was campaigning ahead of elections due in January.

  1. A very tragic happening for the whole world, especially for South Asia. She seemed to be the last glimmer of hope in highly unstable and undemocratic Pakistan.
    I heard her once on TV and learnt that she was a woman of high calibre and integrity..not to mention of great beauty.
    Very sad.

  2. Indeed a shock! Pakistan is definitely headed the autocratic rule way!
