The first female Prime Minister in the Muslim world, Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in a gun and bomb attack today in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Bhutto was attending to a election rally there when the tragedy happens. Wasif Ali Khan a member of Pakistan's Peoples Party (PPP) said Bhutto died at 18.16 (13.16GMT) in Rawalpindi General Hospital. According to BBC news today at least 15 was also killed in the incident.
Democracy in Pakistan seems to be more in vain as how things happened now. By the way will the coming elections on January will still go on despite this tragedy. Is it a conspiracy? It seems that in the event of her assassination there was a bomb blasted nearby and Bhutto was killed by a gunshot on her head in news at Reuters today. Hmm.. it seems like the bomb blasted just to divert the attention and the killer seems to just shot Bhutto direct at her head. Any takers?
