SUICIDE BOMBER KILLS 124 INJURES 320
ATTACK ON BENAZIR'S CARCADE
BENAZIR ESCAPES UNHURT
CNN reports how a suicide bomber first throws a handgrenade to distract attention and then triggers another powerful blast just as Benazir Bhutto gets inside her bullet and blast proof truck, killing 124 and injuring 320.
A vehicle just behind Benazir's truck has been blown up and some 20 People' Party of Pakistan's leaders have been killed. But most of those killed are security persons.
This just shows that the return of democracy to Pakistan is not going to be easy.
Besides, it exposes President Musharaf's security arrangements. Just before the blasts CNN reported how easy it was to get close to the vehicle carrying Benazir.
Its said to be among the top ten most powerful blasts in the past ten years and observers say it was nothing but a plot to assassinate Benazir Bhutto.
