Gunmen killed the governor of  Pakistan's Punjab province, a senior member of the ruling  party, in Islamabad on Tuesday, his spokesman said.

"Yes he has died," said the spokesman for Salman Taseer.  His death comes as the Pakistan People's Party-led government  is trying to muster support in a political crisis that erupted  after a key coalition partner quit.
