4 Dead at Nawal Sharif's Rally

Violence persisted in Pakistan today. Assassinated candidate Benazir Bhutto's rival, Nawal Sharif held a rally today that ended with gunfire. Reports say that even the police withdrew from the area as the gunfire lasted for over 30 minutes. Amazingly, only four have been reported dead.

Unfortunately I think this is merely the beginning.

I hope you are wrong but share your concern.

I think it will take some time to actually realise what has happened today.

For the moment, I am sad and as we watch it play out, I am convinced we will rue how uninvolved we were in this part of the world...specifically the current government.
