RAWALPINDI, Pakistan - Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto was assassinated Thursday in a suicide bombing that also killed at least 20 others at a campaign rally, a party aide and a military official said.

Earlier, it was reported that Bhutto was in critical condition undergoing emergency surgery at Rawalpindi General Hospital.

An Associated Press reporter at the scene could see body parts and flesh scattered at the back gate of the Liaqat Bagh park where Bhutto had spoken. He counted about 20 bodies, including police, and could see many other wounded people.

RAWALPINDI, Pakistan, December 27, 2007

Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto was killed in a gun and bomb attack after a rally in the city of Rawalpindi on Thursday, her party said.

"She has been martyred," said party offical Rehman Malik.

Police at the scene said about 15 people had been killed.

A Reuters witness said he saw about eight bodies on a road as well as a mutilated human head.

An Interior Ministry spokesman said initial reports suggested it was a suicide bombing and more than 10 people had been killed.

A suicide bomber killed nearly 150 people in an attack on Bhutto on Oct. 18 as she paraded through the southern city of Karachi after returning home from eight years in self-imposed exile.

Earlier, gunmen opened fire on supporters of another former prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, from an office of the party that supports President Pervez Musharraf, killing four Sharif supporters, police said.

Sharif was several kilometres away from the shooting and was on his way to Rawalpindi after attending a rally.

Sharif, who was overthrown by Musharraf in a 1999 coup and allowed back into the country just last month after seven years in exile, blamed supporters of the pro-Musharraf party for the violence.

But a spokesman for the party denied that its workers were involved.

The shooting occurred near an office of the pro-Musharraf Pakistan Muslim League (Q).

"Somebody from inside the election office opened fire," said senior police official ShahidNadeem Baloch.

"But I can't say they were Q people," he said, referring to the pro-Musharraf party. "It's an election office and lots of people sit there during election time."

this is actually quite sad

I had been following events on the news about Pakistan for a few months and it seemed like she was the best hope for a voice of moderation. On one hand she had to fight Musasharif who has been holding onto power fir longer than he was supposed to and on the other there is a growing population of hardcore Islamic savages who were burning down anything considered "western" such as music stores, beating women publicly for not covering their heads, drinking establishments (Pakistan is a modern city, not like cities in Iran, Iraq etc).

Its obvious the latter group are the ones who did this. But I sooo hope no one holds it against Muslims because.....like......Islam is the religion of peace and all :icon_roll

I wouldn't be surprised if Musharraf's ISI had a hand in this too. BBC this morning said three shots were fired from a building housing offices of Musharraf's party just before the suicide bombing. Musharraf has used the terrorists to his advantage before. No reason to think he wouldn't use them again.

I say we engage in some "parking lot diplomacy". If they don't do what we want them to, we should turn their country into a parking lot.

It's easier to say "Fuck you" and then leave. No more Foreign Aid, no more bullshit.

Why the hell did she stick her head out of the sunroof anyway? Must have seemed like a good idea at the time.

Don't forget Pakistan has nuclear missles, not sure of the range though. Can't let the extremists take over or the region is really fucked.
