"Pakistan On The Brink"

11 of 12

"Common Ground" Former Prime Ministers Nawaz Sharif and Benazir Bhutto meet December 4, 2007 in Islamabad, Pakistan in their first and only meeting in Pakistan since they both returned from eight years in exile. The formerly bitter rivals met for hours trying to find common ground to challenge the rule of President Pervez Musharraf, who had declared martial law. Earlier in the day, a court had barred Sharif from running in scheduled elections, and three weeks later Bhutto was assassinated, throwing Pakististan's political system even deeper into the abyss.
