01The Assassination - Part One20190113

Ten years ago, Benazir Bhutto, a woman people would form human chains to protect from assassins, died in a suicide blast. The intervening years have brought allegations, arrests and a UN inquiry – but not one murder conviction. It is one of the world's great unsolved murders.

The Bhuttos are to Pakistan what the Kennedys are to the US: a powerful political dynasty, a family that inspire love and hate; a name that carries glamour and intrigue – Benazir was just the latest in a long line of Bhuttos to be murdered.

With exclusive inside access to the official investigation and a shelf load of leaked, secret documents, The Assassination looks at what happened and why; what we know and what we don't. The story spans the globe, from Pakistan to the US, to the Gulf and the UK, and hears from the victim, her family and the accused.

Through the mystery of this murder Owen Bennett Jones reveals a little of how Pakistan works.
