Pakistan Link reported on Sunday that:
"Nawab Akbar Bugti, leader of the Bugti tribe, president of the Jamhoori Watan Party and the driving force behind the anti-government rebellion in Balochistan, was killed in a massive military operation in the Bhambore Hills, an area between the cities of Kohlu and Dera Bugti."
AP reports today:
"Mobs burned shops, banks and buses yesterday in a second day of rioting over the killing of a top tribal chief by Pakistani troops, raising fears that a decades-old conflict in the country's volatile southwest could widen. Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif told Pakistani television that Nawab Akbar Bugti's death Saturday was 'the darkest chapter in Pakistan's history.'" ( You remember Narwas Sharif right? He's the one Clinton let Pervy ouverthrow.) Police arrested 450 people for rioting, but the violence spread from Baluchistan province into neighboring Sindh province. Political analysts feared the killing of Bugti, 79, a champion of greater rights for ethnic Baluch tribespeople, could influence more young Pakistanis to take up extremism."
I will have more to say about this very big development either tomorrow or Wedenesday. Read what I wrote about Boluchistan back in Feb:
