At least 130 people were killed and hundreds of others wounded when two suicide explosions went off a minute apart shortly after midnight near Karsaz close to the vehicle Ms Bhutto was travelling in, at the head of a procession of hundreds of thousands of Pakistan People's Party (PPP) supporters who had flooded the streets of the city to welcome the return of their leader.

In the three-day mourning party flag at the PPP offices throughout Pakistan would be lowered at half-mast and black flags will be hoisted to mourn the tragic incident.

Ms Bhutto was unhurt, narrowly escaping with her life.
