It has been confirmed. Former Prime Minister and one of the major contenders in the upcoming elections, Ms Benazir Bhutto, has been killed in a bomb blast after speaking at a political rally in Rawalpindi. The rally was being held at Liaquat Bagh, named after the first Prime Minister of Pakistan who was also assassinated at the same spot.
It is a sorry state of affairs that things have only gotten worse in the 60-year history of this country. I shudder to think what things will be like for us in the aftermath of this terrible tragedy.
