Last Saturday, an assassination attempt was made on the Yemeni Prime Minister Mohammed Basindawa in Sanaa, near his home.
China’s Xinhua News Agency reports:
“[An] unidentified gunman went out from a car and opened fire at the prime minister’s convoy on a street close to the Political Security Agency in Sanaa,” Badi said.
The prime minister’s bodyguards returned fire but the would-be assassin fled, the adviser said.
Another assassination attempt yesterday on the Interior Minister of Egypt, Mohamed Ibrahim, raises more eyebrows on covert activities against political leaders. Two explosions targeted his envoy while headed towards the ministry headquarters. Luckily, he survived the attempt and was not hurt ; However, a driver and several bystanders were injured in the blast, and a dozen police officers and security officers and nine innocent bystanders were injured. A child and a police officer each lost a leg in the attack.
Officials are unclear at this point if it was a car bomb or an IED on the roadway that was set off as the convoy passed through the Nasr City district. Another state media outlet reported that a bomb was actually thrown from a nearby building. Prime Minister Hazem Beblawi released as statement:
“The Cabinet confirms that this criminal offense will not deter the government from facing off terrorism with force and determination, or hitting with an iron fist any hand that jeopardizes the nation’s safety, and that is until stability returns to the corners of our beloved Egypt,”
Some in Egypt are fearful that this attack could begin a low-grade insurgency in the country, which has a long history of terror attacks in the 1990’s and 2000’s, which would significantly reduce their tourism revenue.
Just as in the case of Benazir Bhutto, former Prime Minister of Pakistan, who was assassinated in an incident involving a gunman carrying a bomb in December 2007, two weeks before the scheduled 2008 general election – in which she was a leading opposition candidate. 20 other people were also killed in the attack. Mainstream media talking heads continued to tow the party line by repeatedly claiming that the attack did “not bear the hallmarks of al-Qaida … but there is possibility that al-Qaida did it,”
According to Pravda:
A party security adviser said Bhutto was shot in neck and chest as she got into her vehicle to leave the rally in Rawalpindi near the capital Islamabad. A gunman then blew himself up, the AP reports.
Benazir Bhutto was a Pakistani politician. Bhutto was the first woman elected to lead a post-colonial Muslim state. She was twice elected Prime Minister of Pakistan. She was sworn in for the first time in 1988 but removed from office 20 months later under orders of then-president Ghulam Ishaq Khan on grounds of alleged corruption. In 1993 Bhutto was re-elected but was again removed in 1996 on similar charges, this time by President Farooq Leghari.
Slain Zulfikar was prosecutor of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), the country’s superior agency investigating the 2007 assassination of Benazir Bhutto and the 2008 Mumbai attacks, which had killed 164 people and injured nearly 300 others.
I wonder what these leaders were going to do that ended up requiring permanent silence?
