Breaking News

Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto has been killed in a terrorist attack.

Updates (Israel time)

3:50PM: It has been reported she was killed in a “gun and suicide bomb attack after an election rally.”

A Reuters witness at the scene said he heard two shots moments before the blast.

“As party leaders, including Bhutto, started coming out a man tried to go close to them and then he fired some shots and blew himself up,” said Yaseen, a police officer, at the scene.

According to the CNN report, she died “following a bullet wound in the neck”, which indicates she died from the shots fired at her, rather than the suicide bomb attack.

3:57PM: She was shot in the neck and chest according to this report.

4:00PM: The Ha’aretz news ticker showed this item:

15:50: Russian Deputy FM: Bhutto death will trigger wave of terror

But wasn’t Bhutto killed in an act of terrorism, not long after she narrowly averted death in a separate terror attack? Looks to me like the wave of terror in Pakistan long preceded her death.

5:00PM: Al Qaeda is claiming responsibility for the attack.
