KARACHI, Pakistan: Pakistani police fired tear gas to disperse supporters of former Prime Minister Imran Khan in the southern city of Karachi on Sunday, less than two weeks before a national parliamentary election that Khan was blocked from running in because of a criminal conviction.
An Associated Press reporter at the scene saw between 20 and 30 people getting arrested at the rally. A dozen workers from Khan’s political party were arrested for attacking officers and blocking the road, police said.
