Outspoken Pakistani Governor Salman Taseer leaves legacy of tweets
The Washington Post's Karin Brulliard reported Tuesday on the assassination of Salman Taseer, the governor of Pakistan's Punjab province. He was allegedly killed by one of his own security guards.
The guard claims that anger over Taseer's stance against blasphemy laws provoked the assassination. Taseer recently publicly endorsed a pardon for a Christian woman sentenced to death for blasphemy. Much of that public endorsement took place on his Twitter feed. We've compiled a few of the notable tweets below.
