Former Prime Minister and leader of the most popular Pakistani political party, Pakistan Peoples Party, Benazir Bhutto has been killed in a suicide bombing in Rawalpindi a couple of hours ago.
Pakistani former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto has been assassinated in a suicide attack.
Ms Bhutto had just addressed an election rally in Rawalpindi when she was shot in the neck by a gunman who then reportedly set off a bomb.
At least 15 other people died in the attack and several more were injured.
[..] It was the second suicide attack against Benazir Bhutto in recent months and comes amid a wave of bombings targeting security and government officials.
[…] The explosion occurred close to an entrance gate of the park in Rawalpindi where Ms Bhutto had been speaking.
Wasif Ali Khan, a member of the PPP who was at Rawalpindi General Hospital, said she died at 1816 (1316 GMT).
Supporters at the hospital began chanting “Dog, Musharraf, dog”, the Associated Press (AP) reports.
Some supporters wept while others exploded in anger, throwing stones at cars and breaking windows.
Police confirmed reports Ms Bhutto had been shot in the neck and chest before the gunman blew himself up.
This is definitely the worst news in probably the worst year in Pakistani history.
