Benazir Bhutto, RIP

Talk about wanting to make certain of your target ....

Benazir Bhutto, former Pakistani PM and leader of the People's Party (an opposition group; she was going to contest Pervez Musharraf for the leadership of Pakistan) had just wrapped up a rally in Rawalpindi when a guy came up and shot her twice, in the chest and neck. The shooter then (according to current published accounts) yanked the thunder cord on the suicide vest he was wearing.

Pow, pow, and BOOM.

Talking about making sure.

Bhutto was declared dead at the nearby hospital, and now the fun begins.

Things will probably get very ugly very fast in Pakistan, and my advice to you is to watch carefully, as Pakistan has about 50 nuclear warheads in its arsenal (a guess based on how much fissile materials they've been able to crank out - think Iran's a problem? Think again).
