Pakistani police file terrorism charges against Khan
Police in the Pakistani capital have filed charges against former prime minister Imran Khan, 17 of his aides and scores of supporters, accusing them of terrorism and several other offences after his followers clashed with security forces in Islamabad the previous day.
For hours on Saturday, Khan’s followers clashed with police outside a court where the former prime minister was to appear in a graft case.
Riot police wielded batons and fired tear gas while Khan’s supporters threw fire bombs and hurled rocks at the officers.
More than 50 officers were injured and a police checkpoint, several cars and motorcycles were torched.
