Benzir Bhutto Killed by Militants

Benjir Bhutto has been killed by jihadi militants of Pakistan. This is very sad news for Pakistan an Pakistani countrymen. She was shot by some of the suicide bomber man presence in the crowd which held in Peshawar. It was political rally. she returned in Pakistan last month.

Like the Nehru-Gandhi family in India, the Bhuttos of Pakistan are one of the world's most famous political dynasties. Benazir's father, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, was prime minister of Pakistan in the early 1970s
His government was one of the few in the 30 years following independence that was not run by the army.She was twice prime minister of Pakistan, from 1988 to 1990, and from 1993 to 1996.
She faced corruption charges in at least five cases, all without a conviction.She was convicted in 1999 for failing to appear in court, but the Supreme Court later overturned that judgement.
Soon after the conviction, audiotapes of conversations between the judge and some top aides of then Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif were discovered that showed that the judge had been under pressure to convict.

Ms Bhutto returned to Pakistan on 18 October 2007 after President Musharraf signed into law an ordinance granting her and others an amnesty from corruption charges.
