Police Discover Bhutto Killer's Head (Warning: Gross)
Forensic experts reconstructed the suicide bomber’s head in an attempt to identify him.
Meanwhile, the government changed its tune on the cause of Bhutto’s death in a press conference today.
Hindustan Times reported:
In a dramatic U-turn, Pakistan government has “apologised” for claiming that former premier Benazir Bhutto died of a skull fracture after hitting the sunroof of her car during a suicide attack.
Caretaker Interior Minister Hamid Nawaz Khan has asked the media and people to “forgive and ignore” comments made by his ministry’s spokesman Javed Iqbal Cheema which were slammed by her Pakistan People’s Party as “lies” and led to an uproar at home and abroad.
The Interior Minister made the apology during a briefing for Pakistani newspaper editors on Monday. Punjab province on Tuesday issued a front-page advertisement in newspapers that offered a reward of Rs 1 crore for information about a gunman and a suspected suicide bomber seen in the photos and video footage of the assassination.
Question: Authorities said that the man with the gun was not the suicide bomber. It was thought that the man in the white robe in this photo was the suicide bomber.
Photos from The Telegraph.
Doug Ross has more photos.
But, from the photo in the poster (below) of the suicide bomber, the head looks like it belongs to the shooter.
Generally, after a suicide bombing, officials may find the head of the bomber. So, the question is, “Was the shooter the bomber?”
More… The Daily Times says the shooter blew himself up after firing at Bhutto.
It must have been the same person. But, it still does not explain the strange man wrapped in white next to the shooter.
Fausta has the latest- the PPP officials are not that happy about the family’s clutch on the party.
