    Fatima Bhutto is from a Sindhi family. She was born in Kabul, Afghanistan,
    while her father Murtaza Bhutto, the son of former Pakistan's President
    and Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, was in exile during the military
    regime of General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq. Her mother is Fauzia Fasihudin Bhutto,
    daughter of Afghanistan's former Foreign Affairs official.

    Her father was killed by the police in 1996 in Karachi during the premiership
    of his sister, Benazir Bhutto. Her parents divorced when she was young and
    Ghinwa Bhutto became her stepmother in 1989.

    Years later, her mother unsuccessfully attempted to gain parental custody of Fatima.
    She lives with her stepmother Ghinwa Bhutto, and her half-brother
    Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto Jr. They live at the famous residence 70 Clifton
    Road in Old Clifton, Karachi.

    The title of Bhutto's book 8.50 a.m. 8 October 2005 marks the moment of the 2005 Kashmir earthquake; it records accounts of those affected. She has also written a book of poetry, Whispers in the Desert; a memoir, Songs of Blood and Sword, was published in April 2010.
