Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto was assassinated by a suicide bomber/shooter during a political rally on Thursday, an attack which also killed at least a dozen other people. Bhutto was just 54 years old and looking to win a third term as Pakistan’s prime minister.
Whatever the politics, assassination is always wrong. I hope that the 2008 presidential candidates make substantive comments about this situation beyond just good sound bites.
