Expected, it was a really stupid move from her to go to rallies and such after so many threats.

Sad. I just saw it. She was very pretty, too.

Re: Benazir Bhutto 'dies after rally blast'

Unbelievable.
The conditions under which it happened are so eerily similar to those around Rajiev Gandhi's assassination, at an election rally, exposed as he was leaving, not protected enough, trying to make a comeback into politics. RIP

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Terrible news, but as others have said, not unexpected



Classy, this courageous woman has been assassinated and you take the opportunity to continue your bush bashing bullshit

We've seen political killings in those countries as well.

True, but when was the last one, and how many of them were described as 'inevitable'?

Oh, it still happens. Granted, I can't think of a recent example in the UK and the US but if you're willing to look outside that box and just off the top of my mind: The Netherlands. Pim Fortuyn.

Good memory, but again did anyone describe this as 'inevitable'. Fortuyn was killed by one freak, probably acting alone, in a country with free speech rights. Those rights have not changed as a result of his assassination. Yes, there are political killings in EVERY country, but again I think the main difference with this one in particular was that it has been described as 'inevitable' from the moment she landed back in Pakistan. She certainly didn't help herself by standing up in the sunroof of the vehicle despite the advice against it, but she wanted to stand up freely for her supporters and for her cause.
