Breaking News: Benazir Bhutto Assasinated

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated between 7:30 Pm and 8:00 PM (Edit) ~6:15 PM (Thanks Priya) (Pakistan Standard Time) today. This is really bad news for Pakistan where she was one of the possible Prime Minister candidates. It is also bad news for India for it might unleash various reactions, both from her supporters here and from radical elements.

Benazir Bhutto was shot at and also attacked by a suicide bomber.

    Yep, it is sad man. I’m still shocked.

    She was assassinated at 6:16 Pak time, 6:46 Indian time. The suicide bomber was a diversion to penetrate her security cordon, and the assassins were two snipers who shot her and then blew themselves up… due to the blowing up, no one went near the car for ten minutes…. during which if help had reached her, she would have been saved.

    Yeah, I found out the exact time later.

    And she was shot at by an AK 47 rifle apparently but I cannot confirm that. There is no mention of a sniper anywhere either.

    And most news reports claim that it was the Gunman who blew himself up and was not a distraction
