World: Bhutto Update

Update: Apparently, the U.S. has succeeded in putting enough pressure on Musharraf to ensure that Benazir Bhutto's house arrest has been lifted. Interesting. Less than 24 hours ago, the authorities were claiming it was not a house arrest, but a protective measure for Bhutto's safety.

Now the question remains whether Musharraf will arrange for a convenient little "suicide bombing" the next time Bhutto attends a public event, and how likely he is to be able to actually kill her.

A possible suicide bomb apparently detonated at the house of a Pakistani minister killed four people today, according to CNN. The minister escaped unharmed.
