Pakistan Reacts to Bhutto's Death
Former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was killed at a political rally on Thursday.
Bhutto was shot as she waved to the crowd through the sunroof of her vehicle following a speech, witnesses reported. A suicide bomber then detonated a bomb, killing himself and at least 20 people. Washington Post reporter Griff Witte discusses the scene in Pakistan with Day to Day from the hospital where Bhutto's body was being held.
"There is a tremendous amount of anger here directed at President Musharraf and his allies," Witte says. "People have been going around burning posters of Musharraf supporters and expressing tremendous anguish. There is great unrest right now."
No one had taken responsibility for the incident yet, he said.
