Day of Mourning

Today is a national day of mourning for the late Punjab Governor Salman Taseer who was assasinated by his own bodyguard Malik Mumtaz Hussain Qadri yesterday in Islamabad.
Qadri reportedly said he killed Taseer due to the latter's vocal opposition of the blasphemy law in Pakistan. Notably, Taseer made headlines when he appealed for the pardon of a Christian Pakistani woman, Asia Bibi,who had been sentenced to death for blasphemy. It was suspected that this was the main reason for his assassination.

  6. Yeah, what's up with that? You can't just go bombing and shooting people all the time.

    This isn't reality TV.
