Those of you who've been online all day will know this already, but for people like me who've just got online: Pakistan's ex-Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was killed in a suicide bombing attack today.

The impression I have is that she was no angel, though to what extent she was genuinely guilty of corruption and to what extent the charges were falsified is a question that can't be answered. But it is really quite scary that the leader of a political party can be assassinated just before an election in a country whose stability is a serious issue for the world in general.
