Benazir Bhutto assassinated

on thursday night.

RAWALPINDI, Pakistan : Former Pakistan premier Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in a stunning suicide attack on Thursday that plunged the Muslim nation deeper into crisis and sparked alarm around the world.

Less than two weeks before general elections, a suicide bomber pierced her security cordon to shoot her in the neck as she left a campaign rally. He then blew himself up, killing at least 20 people, police and party officials said.

The powerful blast tore off limbs and shredded clothes. Many people ran in panic, screaming as they trampled over pieces of human flesh. Puddles of blood dotted the road.

“There was an enormous explosion, and then I saw body parts flying through the air,” said Mirza Fahin, a professor at a local college.“When the dust cleared, I saw mutilated bodies lying in blood. I have never seen anything so horrible in my life – just parts of human beings, flesh, lying in the road.”
