Pakistan Prime Minister Candidate Benazir Bhutto Assassinated

To read an update on this breaking story click here:

President Musharraf just recently lifted the "suspension of the constitution" and set the date for the Parliamentary elections in Pakistan for January 8, 2008. Former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto who had previously been placed under house arrest was allowed to register for the election and had begun her campaign.

Reportedly, hours before her assasination as a result of a car bomb, several supporters of another former Primer Minister, Nawaz Sharif were shot and killed. Bhutto's assassination has the potential to unleash even more unrest in Pakistan.

The continued turmoil in Pakistan comes as lawmakers are just now beginning to question how the hundreds of millions in aid from the United States has been spent.
