Nawaz Sharif is the guy you're thinking of...and he's been strangely low-profile since his last attempt to enter pakistan on the 10th sept
"If she had not come out of the vehicle, she would have been unhurt, as all the other occupants of the vehicle did not receive any injuries," ministry spokesman Brigadier Javed Cheema said.
He said the post-mortem on the populist opposition leader, whose funeral earlier Friday was attended by hundreds of thousands of mourners, found her mortal wound came when she tried to duck after the bomber attacked.
The bomber also apparently fired three times at her but missed, Cheema said.
When she ducked, she hit the lever of the sunroof of the car that was to speed her away from a campaign rally as she was gearing up to contest parliamentary elections set for January 8.
"The lever struck near her right ear and fractured her skull," Cheema said. "There was no bullet or metal shrapnel found in the injury."
Cheema showed a brief video of the moments before the attack and the blast itself but it was unclear.

The real assassin sent by Musharraf took a pre-determined vantage point and, using a scoped rifle, shot a large caliber bullet made of ice into the back of Bhutto's head. A lot of damage and no bullet to be found.
