Was Bhutto Shot?

The shocking death of Benazir Bhutto has turned into a confounding argument over the cause.

Early reports said she’d died in a bomb blast. Then reports of gunshots surfaced. Now amateur photos show two possible attackers: a clean-cut (alleged) gunman and a head-scarf-wearing (alleged) bomber.

The government claims that neither man killed Bhutto — that instead, she fractured her skull after knocking her head on her car’s sunroof during the attack.

Bhutto’s aides call that notion “ludicrous.”

The political website TalkingPointsMemo has been covering this argument quite carefully — even sharing analysis by interested doctors.
