We’re likely to see many videos purporting to be of Benazir Bhutto’s last moments, and many of them will be labeled “exclusive” as this one is. The likelihood that there may have been multiple personal camcorders on the scene means that we’ll probably see new footage of the rally trickle for months if not years to come. This footage was released by the Pakistani Interior Ministry earlier today.
This particular clip isn’t very dramatic but does show, as one CNN anchor notes, how vulnerable Bhutto was when she decided to pop up through the roof of the van she was in. She was exposed and, due to the crowd, unable to move. It was an ideal moment for the hit that killed her.
