Lubbock area leaders are reacting to the assassination of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. Congressman Randy Neugebauer issued this statement:
"Those responsible are enemies of freedom. They must be brought to justice and made to pay for the crimes they have committed against Bhutto and her family, as well as the other innocent people murdered in this senseless attack."
Benazir Bhutto was killed today after a suicide attack in Pakistan. The assassin ran up to Bhutto at a public rally, shot her twice, and blew himself up. Twenty others were also killed.
