Pakistan ex-PM Bhutto assassinated at political rally

On December 27, 2007, former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in a suicide attack at a rally in Rawalpindi. Bhutto, head of the opposition Pakistan People's Party, was campaigning for parliamentary elections, where her party was challenging the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) of President Pervez Musharraf. Bhutto's husband, Asif Ali Zardari, was later elected to succeed Musharraf.
