I'd been following the Benazir Bhutto story since her return to Pakistan, thanks to NPR. This turn of events is just awful.
But what's really insane is that the "emergency" government set up by Musherif (sp?) had her put under house arrest, apparently for her own safety (the military was positioned all around her house; no one in, no one out). She and her close friends/political allies, while stuck in that house, conducted some interviews with NPR and talked about how silly it was, and how this was a stall tactic that wasn't any good.
Maybe they were better off stuck in house arrest?
This is just too sad.
Anyone else keeping up on this?
