We Remember: Benazir Bhutto

We lost Benazir Bhutto 3 years ago.
We remember and will never forget.

"As the AFP is reporting, loyalists from across the country descended on her grave in the southern village of Garhi Khuda Bakhsh, beating their chests and chanting "Bhutto was alive yesterday and Bhutto is alive today."

The first woman to become prime minister of a Muslim country, Bhutto was killed Dec. 27, 2007 in a Taliban-led gun and suicide attack after addressing an election rally in Rawalpindi, not far from the capital Islamabad.

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari spoke to the crowds who gathered to honor his late wife, pledging allegiance to her vision of transforming Pakistan into a modern democratic state. "We pay tribute to her courage and leadership...we also vow to continue to fight for the values she upheld and laid down her life for."
