Benazir Bhutto Assassinated
So very very sad.
In the nation whose history is dotted by military coups, assassinations and hangings of public figures, this is surely the bloodiest stain. She titled her autobiography, the Daughter of Destiny – but surely she deserved a fate other than the destiny of her father and Liaqut Ali Khan. It is truly a tragedy and a revelation of the chaos gripping the nation.
Via Eteraz updates – Ayman Al-Zawahiri (Al-Qaeda) has claimed responsibility.
Both Chapati Mystery and Eteraz (check out his side bar for links to his external writtings at Huffington Post and his initiative PakistanPolitics.net) have provided extensive coverage of protests and martial law in Pakistan and I expect they will be doing the same in this case.
