Threat of extremist takeover: Bhutto

Benazir BhuttoIslamabad, November 3
Warning that Pakistan is facing an “increasing threat of an extremist takeover,” former Pakistan Premier Benazir Bhutto has said the deadly suicide attack on her homecoming procession may have been the handiwork of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden’s son Hamza.

Bhutto, who survived the terror attack in Karachi on October 18 that killed nearly 140 people and injured hundreds more, said the restoration of democracy is a must to save Pakistan. She was reported to be heading back for Pakistan.

The 54-year-old two-time Prime Minister said she believed the attack might have been the handiwork of Hamza Bin Laden, the son of Osama Bin Laden, and repeated her demand that the Pakistan government should seek assistance from foreign countries in probing the incident. — PTI
