Bhutto Assassinated

There are plenty of stories available - the one from CNN is about as good as any of them. I don't know much about the political landscape in Pakistan to offer much commentary beyond noting that first, this is not good news by any remote stretch of the imagination; and second, that a sad reality is that those who rise to leadership against the status quo tend to become more at risk as they become perceived as more of a threat.

Plenty of coverage and commentary is available: Juan Cole, TPM muckraker, and The Newshoggers would make excellent starting points.
