Benazir Bhutto, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, was assassinated on December 27, 2007, while attending a political rally in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. She was shot multiple times by a suicide bomber, who then detonated his explosives, causing a powerful blast that killed at least 20 people and injured many more.
The attack occurred just weeks before a scheduled general election, in which Bhutto was expected to run for re-election as Prime Minister. The assassination sent shockwaves throughout Pakistan and the international community, and sparked widespread protests and violence in the country.
An investigation into Bhutto’s death was launched, and several suspects were arrested and charged in connection with the attack. However, questions and controversy continue to surround the circumstances of her death, and some have suggested that there may have been broader political and security failures that contributed to the assassination.
