Bhutto's last moments, a photographer's account

As I'm sure we've all heard, former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated Thursday after a rally just weeks before elections in that country.

John Moore was on hand shooting for Getty.

Someone at the New York Times must have been on the ball because by this morning they had Moore's pictures and his account of what was happening up on the website.

It's graphic at times, so you've been warned, yet powerful and not to be missed.

Keep an ear out for when he talks about where he decided to shoot and not shoot. That's experience talking, very brutal experience.

It may not be flashy or groundbreaking, but it shows the power of multimedia and it's ability to take us there and deliver a richer story. Plus you get to here a master like Moore speak. (I wouldn't be surprised to see his name up for another Pulitzer.)
