Arrest Made in Benazir Bhutto Killing; Death Squad Revealed

This is a sad commentary on madness and Muslim fanatics. Fox News is reporting that a 15-year-old boy has been arrested as a suspect in the killing of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

Police also broke up a plot involving cyanide and explosives intended to attack Ashoura processions.

A brief excerpt from the full article:
" Security officials in Pakistan's North West Frontier Province said Saturday they arrested a teenager allegedly involved in the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto last month.

The suspect, 15-year-old Aitezaz Shah, told investigators he had been part of a five-man squad deployed that day in the city of Rawalpindi, where Bhutto was killed, a senior intelligence official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

In the capital, Islamabad, however, a government spokesman said he could not confirm the official's claim. Interior Ministry spokesman Jawed Iqbal Cheema said he had no information about any arrests in the area allegedly involved, or about any new developments in the Bhutto case.

The intelligence official said Shah told investigators that the team of assassins had been dispatched by Baitullah Mehsud, a militant leader from the South Waziristan region with strong ties to al-Qaida and an alliance with the Taliban in nearby Afghanistan."

What kind of indoctrination turns a 15 year old into someone who serves on a planted death squad? The hatred, the blood lust, may doom not only this region to chaos, fear, and death, but others as well as suicide attacks march across the globe.

Since Bhutto's assassination, riots have swept across Pakistan. At least 40 have died so far. Her killing fanned the flames of oppression and hatred.
