The assassination of Benazir Bhutto, the former prime minister of Pakistan, has rocked much of the world. With so much coverage surrounding Bhutto and the future of  Pakistan, a few websites have risen above the fray, offering a deeper understanding of the situation.

For background into Benazir Bhutto, a number of websites have linked to this profile in the New Yorker from 1993.

Himal Southasian, a magazine published in Kathmandu, devoted its upcoming issue to the recent political evolution of Pakistan. Although it was published before Bhutto’s death, the articles give insight into the country’s turbulent political climate.

And the New York Times has a slideshow by a photographer who was present when Bhutto was attacked. To view the slideshow, click here.
