At least 10 of her supporters are supposed to be among the injured as Benazir alongwith the senior leadership of her Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) remained unhurt. The motorcade has since resumed its journey.

Channels including Aaj and Geo TV are showing the blasts as one of the cars bursts into fire immediately after their happening.

Ms. Bhutto arrived in Karachi today, ending eight years of her self-imposed exile. She is believed to be the sweet-heart of the Western Governments and claims to be the most popular leader in Pakistan today.
