    The word from some of my Profs, and others I talk with or read frequently, is that this could become a big deal within - and outside of - Pakistan.
    Political leaders and analysts feared that the killing of Mr Bugti [Sardar Akbar Shahbaz Khan Bugti], a champion of greater rights for ethnic Baluch tribespeople, could influence more young Pakistanis to take up militancy.

    Talaat Masood, a former army general, described the death as a "great tragedy" that would further divide ordinary Pakistanis from the military, led by the president, General Pervez Musharraf. "It is very dangerous when we're already fighting [al-Qaida] terrorists to bring about another reason for radicalising the youth," said Mr Masood.
