    Bhutto 'wounded in suicide blast'

    The blast happened by an entrance to a park
    A suspected suicide attack at a rally of Benazir Bhutto's Pakistan People's Party (PPP) has left at least 15 people dead, police say.
    A PPP spokesman has told the BBC that Ms Bhutto was injured. It is not clear how badly. She had just addressed the rally in the town of Rawalpindi.

    National and provincial assembly elections are due on 8 January.

    In October some 130 people were killed in an attack on Ms Bhutto's cavalcade when she returned to the country.

    It was one of the worst incidents of violence in a year of deteriorating security in Pakistan.

    'Deafening sound'

    Thursday's blast happened at one of the entrance gates to the Liaquat Bagh park in Rawalpindi.

    PPP spokesman Farahtullah Babar said Ms Bhutto was only some 50 metres away when the bomb exploded, the Associated Press news agency reports. "She had just crossed the gate when we heard a deafening sound."

    Mr Babar said that Ms Bhutto was safe, but subsequently PPP party members have said that Ms Bhutto was injured in the blast and taken to hospital.


    Ms Bhutto returned from self-imposed exile in October after years out of Pakistan where she had faced corruption charges.

    Her return was the result of a power-sharing agreement with President Musharraf in which he granted an amnesty that covered the court cases she was facing.

    Since her return relations with Mr Musharraf have broken down.

    On the day of her return she led a motor cavalcade through the city of Karachi. It was hit by a double suicide attack that left some 130 dead.

    The PPP has the largest support in the country.

    Earlier on Thursday at least four people were killed ahead of an election rally that Pakistan's former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was preparing to attend close to Rawalpindi

    Gharama ya mabadiliko ni kubwa mno; ni gharama ambayo wachache wako tayari kuilipa kwa ajili ya watu wao. Bi. Bhutto alitambua kuwa kurudi kwake Pakistani na kuendelea na harakati za mabadiliko ya kisiasa ni sawa na kujikatia tiketi ya kifo. Hata hivyo hakurudi nyuma wala kusita. Ni gharama ambayo wanaharakati duniani wanakuwa wamezipigia mahesabu kuwa wako tayari kuzilipa. Kwa ajili ya nchi yake na kwa ajili ya watu wake, amelipia damu yake! Kwa sisi wengine anakuwa miongoni mwa mishumaa ya fikra za kimapinduzi duniani!

    Mungu ailaze roho yake mahali pema peponi!!

    RAWALPINDI, Pakistan (CNN) -- Pakistan former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto has died after a suicide attack, according to media reports.

    Geo TV quoted her husband saying the politician had died following a bullet wound in the neck.


    Bhutto is helped from her vehicle following the October 18 suicide attack on her motorcade.

    1 of 2 The suicide attack left at least 14 dead and 40 injured, Tariq Azim Khan, the country's former information minister, told CNN in a telephone interview.

    The attacker is said to have detonated a bomb as he tried to enter the rally where thousands of people gathered to hear Bhutto speak, police said.

    Bhutto is said to have been leaving the rally when the attack occurred and was taken to a hospital in an unconcious state, the Geo TV report said.

    Earlier, a spokesman for Bhutto told CNN she was safe and taken away from the scene.

    Video from the scene of the blast broadcast from Geo TV showed wounded people being loaded into ambulances.

    Up to 20 people are dead, the report said.

    Earlier, four supporters of former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif died when members of another political party opened fire on them at a rally near the Islamabad airport Friday, local police said.

    Several other members of Sharif's party were wounded, police added.

    While President Pervez Musharraf has promised free and fair parliamentary elections next month, continued instability in the tribal areas and the threat of attack on large crowds has kept people from attending political rallies and dampened the country's political process.

    Campaigners from various political groups say fewer people are coming out to show their support due to government crackdowns and the threat of violence.

    Musharraf: Emergency halted destruction
    At least 136 people were killed and more than 387 wounded on October 18 when a suicide bomber attacked Bhutto's slow-moving motorcade. The former PM returned to the country after eight years of self-imposed exile to a massive show of support in the southern port city of Karachi.

    Bhutto called it "an attack on democracy" and vowed it would not deter her political campaign.

    Today's violence come less than two weeks ahead of January parliamentary elections and as many days after President Pervez Musharraf lifted a six-week-old state of emergency he said was necessary to ensure the country's stability.

    Critics said Musharraf's political maneuvering was meant to stifle the country's judiciary as well as curb the media and opposition groups to secure more power.

    Mungu Ailaze Roho Yake na Wengine Walioangamia Kwenye Tukio Hilo Pahala Pema Peponi. Amen.

    Inasikitisha kweli kweli, jana tu kaepuka kinajana mmoja aliyetaka kumuua kwa kujitoa mhanga, kumbe akawa amejisitiri kwa siku moja tuu, mara leo hii imetokea.

    Kingine ni ile hali ya kuwa unahofu kila siku kuwa hili jambo linaweza tokea wakati wowote, na kuona kuwa kwa vile alikuwa ameshasema kuwa liwalo na liwe ili mradi tu ameleta hali ya demokrasia nchini mwake na kuona jinsi ndoto hiyo inavyotoweka katika hali ya kusikitisha kama hiyo..

    Very sad indeed. Kama siasa za Musharraf zimefikia hatua hii, bai hali ni mbaya sana. Tupingane bila kupigana.

    Jamani am so sadenned by this schoking news!

    Mi nadhani, kama ni suala la al-qaeda(tusubiri tuone watakaoclaim responsibility) basi hawa jamaa namna yao hii sio njema kabisa...why? ama huyo jamaa musharaf naye ana mkono wake hapo?

    Huwezi kuimagine mtu amekuwa in exile for 8 years kama sikosei, halafu anarudi kusaka demokrasia, na wanaompinga wanaamua kummalza namna hiyo!

    Hiyo nadhani pia imetarnish image ya musharaf, na pakistan kwa ujumle to the whole world!

    Poor Bhutto, Mungu akulaze mahali pema peponi


    yeah, Tanzania hatujafikia hapo, ndio maana ni muhimu kuepuka namna zozote za kutufikisha kwenye demokrasia zisizo za kistaarabu kama hizo...japo kuna watu miongoni mwetu najua wangependa tufikie huko....kwa maslahi yao binafsi..lakini nadhani tupo macho vya kutosha, japokuwa kwa sasa....
