Thousands Mourn Benazir Bhutto

In a news segment following the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, thousands of Pakistanis are seen mourning their former prime minister’s death in the streets of the cities of the country. Benazir Bhutto was the 11th Prime Minister of Pakistan and served two terms: 1988-1990 and 1993-1996. Bhutto went into exile in Dubai in 1999 after corruption charges were brought against her and her government in 1996. After nine years in exile, Bhutto returned to Pakistan in 2007 after the corruption charges were dropped, but was assassinated later that year at a political rally where she was preparing to run for prime minister again.
