I have never been one to comment much on international matters, but the death of Pakistani former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto is a tragic occurrence. Her assignation will have tragic ramifications for both the country and international community at large.

Bhutto’s exile for the last 8 years and subsequent return to the country in October was heralded by many as a return to civil democracy for the country. That desire now lies in tatters. If this extreme action is to be negated, then the democratic process must continue unabated.

The next seven days will show whether this is possible.
