Supporters Rally As Former Pakistani PM Faces Terror Charges
Supporters of former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan blocked the access road to his house in the capital, Islamabad, on August 22 as they feared he might be arrested. Groups of women chanted slogans in support of Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party. Police charged the politician with terrorism after he vowed to sue a judge and two police officials over alleged maltreatment of his aide Shahbaz Gill in detention -- a formulation that authorities assess as intimidation. A court is expected to rule on the charges against Khan on August 25.
