Bhutto was warned that she may be killed

Former Prime Minister of Pakistan Benazir Bhutto announced that she had been warned that suicide squads may kill her upon returning to Pakistan, and that there were two attackers in the bombing that killed over 130.

She said telephone numbers of suicide squads had been given to her by a "brotherly" country and she alerted Gen. Pervez Musharraf in a letter dated Oct. 16. She said one squad was pro-Taliban, the other linked to al-Qaida.

Bhutto said the next attack against her would target her homes in Karachi and her hometown of Larkana, using attackers posing as supporters of a rival political faction.

She said she was confident the government would take measures to prevent it but noted it was suspicious that streetlights failed after sunset Thursday when her convoy was inching its way through the streets of Karachi.

"I'm not accusing the government but certain individuals who abuse their positions and powers," she said.

She blamed the attack on militants trying to quash democratic reforms.

"A minority wants to hijack the destiny of this great nation, and we will not be intimidated by this minority," she told reporters at her Karachi house. "This is a battle for democracy. We wish it to be peaceful. We wish it to be political, which is why, my party and I ... have entered into political negotiations with Gen. Musharraf's regime."

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
