Bhutto killed in blast at Pakistan rally: report

Former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto was reported killed Thursday in an explosion at a rally in the city of Rawalpindi that killed at least 20 others, according to media reports.

An unnamed party aide told wire services that Bhutto had died in the attack at the city's Liaqat Bagh park.

Bhutto had just finished speaking to the crowd of thousands when the blast occurred, freelance journalist Graham Usher told the CBC from the capital, Islamabad.

Shit shit shit shit.

This is not going to end well for Pakistan I fear.
