Benazir Bhutto (1953-2007)

Rest in peace.

I was doing my daily news rounds and I saw the headline: "Benazir Bhutto killed in suicide attack." My heart skipped a beat and then I clicked the link. I don't know why I was so shocked. The headline kinda left nothing to chance. I was so used to reading the news about her, Musharraf and Pakistan on BBC, but now she's dead. I really don't know why I feel so sad. It's strange.

People I knew had such differing opinions of her. Some thought she was a great leader, others thought she was just like any other candidate, while some called her an infidel and another "American-puppet". I was wondering what would happen at the elections, but I guess chaos is all that will happen now.

One of my closest friends is in Pakistan. I hope he's alright.
