Everyone will now be fully aware that former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto was killed in an alleged suicide bomb attack on the 27th December 2007.
The fallout from her assassination is not yet fully known, although it’s pretty clear that Pakistan, the region as a whole, and maybe the whole of the middle east could be affected badly.
This is a video from the beginning of November, just after she had returned to the country, and had survived one assassination attempt.
She talks to David Frost on Al Jazera television about the controversy surrounding her, the attempt on her life, and the political situation as she saw it.
There’s no doubt that her death, especially in the way it happened, is a bad thing for democracy, and the world at large. She’ll be sadly missed as a political figure, and world leader.
