Imran Khan Supporters Protest His Arrest In Pakistan
Former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has been arrested as he appeared in court in Islamabad on May 9 in one of several corruption cases filed against him since he was removed from power more than a year ago. Spontaneous protests in Lahore, Peshawar, and other places aimed to block traffic. In front of a military compound in the city of Mardan protesters chanted “death to the Pakistani Army” accusing the military of corruption. In some cases police responded with tear gas and water cannons.
