At least 120 people are dead in Karachi, Pakistan after one of the deadliest terrorist attacks. The cause was Benazir Bhutto returned to Pakistan to lead her Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) into national elections to return the country to civilian rule – and militants don’t like her democratic approach. Police say it was a suicide bomber. This Reuters report video by Pavithra George captures the second bomb blast live. General Musharraf was among the first to condemn the attacks, as he is in the midst of fighting the difficult battle with militants himself.
