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.
Bhutto was rushed to Rawalpindi General Hospital — less than two miles from the bombing scene — where doctors pronounced her dead.
Former Pakistan government spokesman Tariq Azim Khan said while it appeared Bhutto was shot, it was unclear if the bullet wounds to her head and neck were caused by a shooting or if it was shrapnel from the bomb.
The bomber detonated as he tried to enter the rally where thousands of people gathered to hear Bhutto speak, police said.
You fucking, fucking bastards. I am really too angry to do anything but curse at this point.
