The Scene Near Bhutto's Home

Aniq Zafer, a media adviser to Benazir Bhutto's campaign, is near Bhutto's home in Islamabad.

"People are weeping ... people are quite angry, and they are blaming the state for not protecting their leader," he says.

Zafer says it is too early to discuss the future of her Pakistan Peoples Party, though the election is in 11 days.

"The world will judge," he says, "who will benefit from taking her out."
