    Benazir Bhutto was shot after giving a speech at a rally in Rawalpindi,Pakistan.

    In the 1990's she was Pakistan's Prime Minister (first woman Prime Minister in a Muslim country), and after Pervaz Musharraf (a military General) took over, she left Pakistan. She came back in 2007 in order to bring democracy back to the people of Pakistan by running for the Presidency despite knowing the danger and treats on her life. A month or two later, she was assassinated. Most people believe that it was Muslim militant groups that got her killed because she said she was going to hunt them down once she is the President and also because she was a woman and might have pissed them off; others believe it was her husband who got hr killed in order to be President; and others believe that the CIA got her killed because she knew some secrets.

    She really was inspiring and brought hope for the people of her country but all hopes were destroyed after she died.

    She was a brave and smart woman.

    On 27 December 2007, Bhutto was killed while leaving a campaign rally for the PPP at Liaquat National Bagh, where she had given a spirited address to party supporters in the run-up to the January 2008 parliamentary elections. After entering her bulletproof vehicle, Bhutto stood up through its sunroof to wave to the crowds. At this point, a gunman fired shots at her and subsequently explosives were detonated near the vehicle killing approximately 20 people. Bhutto was critically wounded and was rushed to Rawalpindi General Hospital. She was taken into surgery at 17:35 local time, and pronounced dead at 18:16. Hope this answers your question.

    I think Benazir Bhutto died of gun shots,as many videos show.Also the suicide bombing aggravated her injuries and prevented people from reaching her to help her.There is also a story that she wasn't shot but the lever of her car had damaged her skull.But as the videos show,i believe that she was shot.

    the funny thing is, she was assassinated a few days aftere she went on live tv and gave an interview and said osama bin laden had already been killed.

    she got assassinated while she was leaving a rally I believe.

    the reason for her assassination isn`t clearly know but people speculate that it was because she was a female who was supposedly trying to obtain the position(president) of a man
