Remembering Bhutto one year on
Seasoned party worker Safdar Abbasi is remembering his leader's last words, in an election campaign she never finished.
"I think she was pretty charged that day and the speech that she gave, it was probably one of her finest speeches in recent memory," he says. "She took the crowd along."
Getty Images photographer John Moore recalls her last moments.
"I guess I was 20m [yds] ahead of the car, and I heard three shots fired," he says. "As she moved down through the sunroof, I raised my camera. And just as I took the first photograph is when the blast occurred and there was complete chaos. People running, there was debris flying through the air, pieces of the vehicle, pieces of rubbish, pieces of human beings, all in the air."
The assassination of Benazir Bhutto, Pakistan's most internationally recognised politician, shocked the country and the world, and devastated her supporters.
But what has been the political impact of her death? On one level, it has been huge: her Pakistan People's Party came first in the general election, bolstered by a sympathy vote. For the first time in more than a decade, it formed a national government.
