The world mourns over the death of Benzir Bhutto

Such a tragedy for the world!!!
GARHI KHUDA BAKHSH, Pakistan — Hundreds of thousands of mourners, weeping and chanting for justice, thronged the mausoleum of Pakistan's most famous political dynasty in a raw outpouring of grief for Benazir Bhutto. The government blamed Al Qaeda and the Taliban for the assassination of the opposition leader, who was buried alongside her father.

Furious supporters, many of them blaming — President Pervez Musharraf's government for the shooting and bombing attack on the former prime minister, rampaged through several cities in violence that left at least 23 dead less than two weeks before crucial elections.

Some wept, others chanted "Benazir is alive," as the plain wood coffin was placed beside the grave of her father in the vast, white marble mausoleum in southern Sindh province near the Bhuttos' ancestral home.
