Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto was killed Thursday in a suicide bomb attack on her vehicle, an aide from her party said. Witnesses and police said some 20 others were feared killed when the attacker detonated his bomb.

It was not immediately clear whether she was killed by the bomb or by gunfire that preceded the attack, which occurred during a campaign rally in Rawalpindi, near the capital Islamabad.

A party security adviser said Bhutto was shot in neck and chest as she got into her vehicle to leave the rally. A gunman then blew himself up.

I was following Jim Long, an NBC camerman as he reported on his work in Crawford, Texas. Things have gotten even more interesting. You can follow him, too.
