RAWALPINDI, Pakistan (CNN) -- Pakistan's former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated Thursday in the wake of a suicide bombing that killed at least 14 of her supporters, doctors, a spokesman for her party and other officials said

Bhutto suffered bullet wounds in the aftermath of the bomb attack, TV networks were reporting.

There is a Somali saying “Af-Dabooland Waa Dahab” which roughly translates, “A quiet mouth is GOLD". Before she even become prime minister, this woman bragged about how she disliked about Muslim groups simply to get outside support. She declared war on the Muslim groups and she become the first victim. This could even be the work of Musharaf the dictator. Only Allah knows who is behind this ugly action. ALLa Ya Rahma.

End of the road for a corrupt ruthless dictator.
Her husband used to force major companies to issue him shares throught her reign and was an organised mafia

No sympathy for her,She before hand killed her own brother for power, Now the head of the Mafia family is gone.

Democracy means peoples choice not American choice.

It is a very confusing issue. Is the Pakistani Intelligence involved? It is realy not clear. Everybody will try to spin it to its own advantage. What is certain is that Pakistan is indeed in turmoil. Given the existance of Nukes in the region, it is really scary. What would be the ramification for democratic struggles all over the world in general and Ethiopia in particular? lets discuss this.

Very shocking news. She was the real democratic who stands to the pakistani people.

This assassination should be for the dictator millitary government General Musharuf, not for the real democratic woman. Though really sad news to the people of Pakistan. Yeha
