Reports state that former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was not harmed in the two bombings that took place upon her celebrated return to Pakistan Thrusday after eight years of exile.  

Estimates are that 100 were killed with another 150 injured, and President Musharraf denounced the attack stating this foible was an attempt towards “conspiracy against democracy” with upcoming elections and Bhutto’s possiblity of returning to prime ministership.

Hits a bit close to the Ludhiana blasts that took place recently… anti-Musharraf-ism, Taliban extremism, tensions are everywhere- dialogue and problem-solving seem anemic.

“My return heralds for the people of Pakistan the turn of the wheel from dictatorship to democracy.”
-Benazir Bhutto
