Benazir’s “nerves of steel” can’t be rattled by terror acts: Zardari

“One has to pay a high price for being a politician in South Asia,” Zardari told the BBC.

He alleged that intelligence agencies were behind the explosions, and added that around 150 people had been killed and more than 550 injured in the blasts.

Zardari said he called Bhutto and she is okay. Benazir is a strong woman, he added.

He said it was not the first time that the Bhutto family had been attacked.

Bhutto has seen the murder of her father and brothers and her husband had spent 11 years in prison, the Daily Times quoted him, as saying.

Zadari said that before going to Pakistan Bhutto had written a letter to President Pervez Musharraf indicating the names of those who should be held responsible if something happened to her.

Asked if Karachi blasts had any link with Bhutto’s statements against extremists and about allowing the United Stated to attack inside Pakistan, Zardari said he could not say anything right now “as we are not in power at the moment”. (ANI)
