This is sick. A 15 year old boy has admitted that he was part of a 5 man hit squad to take out Benazir Bhutto last month.
Security officials in Pakistan’s North West Frontier Province said Saturday they arrested a teenager allegedly involved in the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto last month.
The suspect, 15-year-old Aitezaz Shah, told investigators he had been part of a five-man squad deployed that day in the city of Rawalpindi, where Bhutto was killed, a senior intelligence official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.
In the capital, Islamabad, however, a government spokesman said he could not confirm the official’s claim. Interior Ministry spokesman Jawed Iqbal Cheema said he had no information about any arrests in the area allegedly involved, or about any new developments in the Bhutto case.
The intelligence official said Shah told investigators that the team of assassins had been dispatched by Baitullah Mehsud, a militant leader from the South Waziristan region with strong ties to al-Qaida and an alliance with the Taliban in nearby Afghanistan.
What is going on in this world when 15 year olds are so messed up by religious fanatics that they go and do these kinds of things. Very sad.
