Submission + - Pakistan's Benazir Bhutto assassinated (cnn.com)

v1 writes: Yet another assasination attempt was made on Pakistan's former Prime Minister, Benazir Bhutto, this one finally successful, the latest in a string of assasination attempts by suicide bombers. Quoting CNN, "Bhutto, who led Paksitan from 1988 to 1990 and was the first female prime minister of any Islamic nation, was participating in the parliamentary election set for January 8, hoping for a third term." Bhutto's comments regarding investigations into the recent attempts on her life were charitable at best, "The sham investigation of the October 19 massacre and the attempt by the ruling party to politically capitalize on this catastrophe are discomforting, but do not suggest any direct involvement by General Pervez Musharraf." The attacks are widely believed to be coordinated by the military who are currently holding power in Pakistan.
