In 2007, Pakistan experienced one of the most violent and eventful years in its history. The year included the dismissal and reinstatement of the Supreme Court chief justice, the Red Mosque siege and consequent killings, farcical presidential elections, intensified violence in tribal areas that spread to other regions of the country, the imposition of emergency rule and suspension of the Constitution, and the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.
