Al Jazeera English - News - Palestinians Die In Israeli Raids: "Six Palestinians have been killed and 11 others wounded in the Gaza Strip in three Israeli raids on the Hamas-run territory, medics and witnesses said.



Three men, two of them from the Islamic Jihad group, and a third from the armed wing of Hamas, were killed around the southern town of Khan Yunis on Thursday."

Al Jazeera English - Focus - Daughter Of Tragedy

Al Jazeera English - Focus - Daughter Of Tragedy: "What ever else the mind-numbing killing of Benazir Bhutto in Thursday’s suicide attack will mean for Pakistan’s future, there is little doubt that politics in this south Asian country will never be the same again.

Bhutto's death was like a chronicle foretold. She had escaped a bigger suicide attack upon her return from exile in Karachi two months ago - a manifestation of the threat to her life, which extremists had pledged to carry out before her arrival.

These threats emerged after much publicised talks of a power-sharing deal with General Pervez Musharraf, Pakistan's president, which would enable her to return home and participate in the elections in exchange for allowing the beleaguered general to get himself re-elected as president."
