Pakistan's Bhutto Killed in Attack

Benazir Bhutto, 54, Lived in Eye of Pakistan Storm

This puts the January 8th elections into uncertainty in a country with nuclear capability. That's troubling, especially as Bhutto was a strong supporter for democracy. But her record wasn't perfect, as the second article explains. Still, she was the first female prime minister of a Muslim country and had a remarkable career. It's sad to see anyone killed by extremists, and this will throw the elections into chaos, especially with accusations against President Pervez Musharraf for not providing adequate security or even that he could be behind it. Emotions are riding high with demonstrations and disturbances in the streets.
