Former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto has been killed by a suspected suicide bomber:
Ms Bhutto had just addressed an election rally in Rawalpindi when gunfire and an explosion occurred.
At least 15 other people are reported killed in the attack and several more were injured. Ms Bhutto had twice been the country’s prime minister.
She had been campaigning ahead of elections due in January.
Pakistan’s state of emergency – during which Bhutto had been placed under house arrest – was lifted less than two weeks ago.
