More political violence in Pakistan

Protesters from the opposition Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party attempted to shut down the eastern city of Faisalabad as part of a movement against the federal government. Police responded with water cannons, wooden batons and tear gas in several areas, including the central Millat Chowk area. The situation remains tense.

Travellers should avoid all public and political gatherings due to possible violence.
