Add comment on:Pakistan in Turmoil after Benazir Bhutto's Assassination
via Democracy Now
Friday, December 28, 2007 :Hundreds and thousands of Pakistanis attend the funeral of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. Pakistan's political future remains unclear and riots erupted as news of Bhutto's assassination spread across the country. Pakistani President Pervaz Musharraf has blamed Islamic militants for carrying out the assassination but several associates of Bhutto have accused Musharraf himself of having a role. In an e-mail sent to a confidant in the US two months ago, Benazir Bhutto wrote that Musharraf should be held "responsible" if she was assassinated because his government did not do enough to provide for her security. We go to British-Pakistani author and activist Tariq Ali in London and historian Manan Ahmed in Chicago for analysis of the current crisis and Benazir Bhutto's checkered history.
