Supporters of Pakistani opposition politician Imran Khan marched to the parliament building in Islamabad late on August 19 to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Khan and cleric Tahir ul-Qadri are leading mass protests, alleging that Sharif came to power through rigged elections in 2013. Khan warned that he would lead his supporters into Sharif’s office if the prime minister does not step down by the evening of August 20. (RFE/RL's Radio Mashaal)
