Pakistan Peoples’ Party Chairperson Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto died in an alleged suicide bomb blast outside Liaquat Bagh, Rawalpindi. Benazir Bhutto was hit by snipper firing followed by a bomb blast when she was entering in her car after addressing a rally in Liaquat Baqh. She received injuries in head and throat. She was taken to hospital in unconscious condition and died while doctors tried to provide medical support.

This is a turning point in Pakistan’s political history and it will gravely impact the process of upcoming elections in Pakistan.
