The NATO alliance on Friday condemned the Kararchi bomb attacks targeting former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto hours after her return from exile and expressed support for democracy in Pakistan. "NATO condemns in the strongest terms this horrible attack which took place in Karachi last night," said Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, the alliance secretary-general. "The people of Pakistan, they have the right to democratically decide about their future and about their leadership," he told reporters. "That right should not be denied by terrorists who want to destroy that, and that's important for NATO." The Western military alliance has been seeking closer ties with Pakistan to help NATO's mission in neighboring Afghanistan.
