In The News: Pakistan’s Benazir Bhutto Assassinated At Political Rally

This really doesn’t have much to do with sex or relationships, at least in a ridiculously obvious way, but it does have to do with women seeking equality around the world, so in that sense it’s just as important to this site as the latest celebrity sex scandal. Pakistani political activist, former Prime Minister, and current candidate for office (which she hoped to hold for the third time) Benazir Bhutto was killed this morning as she left a rally. She was shot in the neck before a suicide bomber detonated himself, killing 20 others. A few months ago, 134 people were killed in a similar assassination attempt, though Bhutto managed to escape unscathed. She was the first woman to ever lead a Muslim country. [NY Times]
