Violence after Bhutto's assassination


ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan put its paramilitary forces on "red alert" across the country on Thursday after the assassination of opposition leader Benazir Bhutto sparked violent protests by her supporters.

Pictured is a vehicle set ablaze by Bhutto supporters. Bhutto died earlier today in a combined suicide bomb attack and shooting during a political rally for her party, the Pakistan People's Party. Some opposition groups believe her death could lead to civil war. Whether or not you agree with her politics, her assassination reflects the sad state of the Middle East.
