A Pakistani mourner grieves on an ambulance carrying the coffin of Punjab Gov. Salman Taseer during his funeral procession in Lahore, Pakistan, on Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2011. Thousands of Pakistani police were on high alert in Lahore on ahead of the funeral for the outspoken provincial governor, allegedly shot dead by a bodyguard reportedly enraged by his opposition to laws decreeing death for insulting Islam. Mr. Taseer, a high-profile, 66-year-old businessman and media tycoon, was a stalwart of the ruling Pakistan People's Party, and his assassination sent nuclear-armed Pakistan reeling at a time of great political turmoil.
