Terrorism jinx?

Benazir Bhutto

I’ve met three people subsequently murdered by terrorists in three different countries.

John Stevenson was Treasurer of TSB Bank Computer Division (Wythenshawe) Sports and Social Association. I was secretary of the same club, though not at the same time. He was killed with his wife and two daughters in the Pan Am Flight 103 (Lockerbie) bombing on Dec 21, 1988.

I met Benazir Bhutto, who twice became Prime Minister of Pakistan, at the Oxford Union in 1974. She was assassinated in Rawalpindi on 27 December 2007.

Andreas Liveras was at a Greek Orthodox Christian community social event I attended in 2000. He was in India on business when murdered by terrorists in the Mumbai massacre on 27 November 2008.

Stay safe, people!
