Bhutto’s Deadly Homecoming: More Details On Attack

Posted by K.E. White on October 19, 2007

From AFP:

Twin bombs targeting former Pakistan prime minister Benazir Bhutto killed at least 124 people, turning her emotional homecoming parade after eight years in exile into a scene of carnage.

Bhutto was unhurt, narrowly escaping with her life as the blasts ripped through the police escort of the parade in the streets of Karachi, which were thronged with hundreds of thousands of her supporters.

Hospital officials said nearly 400 people were injured in the blasts late Thursday, which involved at least one suicide bomber.
