Update:

The number of people who died in the blasts has exceeded 85.

———————————————————-

The most horrific suspicion has been proven true too; the two blasts in Benazir Bhutto’s motorcade were suicide hits and have killed more than 52 people while injuring close to 80. The dead and the injured include security personnel and PPP supporters who had come to welcome Benzair from across the country including those from Lahore.

Several terrorist organizations had threatened such an attack in case of Benazir’s return on which she seeked permission from the Government to import two bullet-proof vehicles which was easily granted.

The unfortunate incident was not avoided despite of the fact that Ms.Bhutto was given security cover of a level that only the President and Prime Minister of Pakistan enjoy.

Security in other cities including Lahore is going to be put on red-alert after the incident

    I have a feeling that the purpose of the blast is to generate sympathies for BB or to let US know that alqaeda doesnt like her.

    Benazir Bhutto plotted that bomb it self for popularity in poor public because she was loosing popularity but that kind of incident created public favors for her and now she made a big vote bank in Pakistan, local government MQM also fully supported Benazir for this fitna but poor public still they are blind they don’t understand this fitna.
