Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Another comment on this post at Sepia Mutiny says:

i'm on vacation in india, just watching coverage on ndtv. asma jehangir just broke down and said "damn the army" -- mariana babar, editor of the news was just pointing out that the attack was near where her father, zulfikar bhutto was hanged, and where liaquat ali khan was assassinated.

if this swings things towards sharif, well.. that's awful. we live in interesting times, i suppose.

The boldface is mine.

Other posters noted (as is mentioned in the WaPo article) that there was also an attack on a Sharif rally.

The same commenter later said this:

one particular point babar just made was that -- the ppp party workers, a lot of them are in rawalpindi, and are very very die-hard, and that musharaff may not be able to handle their anger after her death. this seems to have shaken and shocked even non-supportive pakistanis.
