Benazir Bhutto Assassinated

In what’s becoming the most dramatic and gloomiest episode so far in Pakistani politics, renowned politician Benazir Bhutto has been assassinated. Her death was caused by shots fired to her chest and neck by a gunman who later blew himself up. Ms Bhutto’s killing occurred at Rawalpindi.

This was the second attempt on her life within just a few months and tragically, she didn’t manage to evade it. I’m saddened by this event and will be praying for Ms Bhutto, her family and Pakistanis in general.
