Benazir Bhutto reported dead after blast in Rawalpindi

There was a bomb explosion at an election rally held by the Pakistan Peoples Party, after Benazir Bhutto had finished addressing the rally.

Reports are confused, some saying she was injured, some saying critically and some now reporting her dead.

This is not a good day for Pakistan. It is difficult to predict what will happen, but what ever happens next is not going to be pleasant.

I expect riots, possibly directed at perceived extremists.

The BBC has this.

Yeah she's dead. Those who live by the sword die by the sword. Quite unfrotunate but true. Chances are that if she didnt make the statement that she would allow US forces onto Pakistani soil if in power, then she would probably still be alive. I feel sorry for the kids.

According to CNN.com, Benazir Bhutto was killed by a blast from an explosion; this is contrary to previous reports that say she was shot. A Scotland Yard analysis shows that there was no evidence of a bullet wound. Wow! Even in a high-profile murder such as this, the media can not get their facts straight!
