Bhutto Lands in Karachi Amidst Bomb Massacre

As Ex-PM Benazir Bhutto returns to Pakistan after a 8 year hiatus, the city of Karachi is racked by what seems are suicide bombers.

Two bombs exploded Thursday night near a truck carrying former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto on her triumphant return to Pakistan after eight years in exile, killing at least 108 people and wounding 150, an official said. Party workers and police said Bhutto was unhurt. [ link ]

Metroblogging city blogs from Karachi and Lahore have live, on the ground coverage.

It is ironic that at a time when democracy seems to have triumphed once, with the return of Bhutto, terrorism rears its ugly head.

Thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Karachi.
