Excuse me?

Anybody else see something wrong with this LA Times introduction to a story about Benazir Bhutto?

The slain prime minister was the first elected leader of a Muslim state, but two decades later the female population is still subject to harsh repression based on religious and tribal taboos.
What about this guy, this guy, this guy, and this guy? Maybe they meant “the first elected female leader of a Muslim state”?
