Ex Pakistan Prime Minister arrested

Written by on May 9, 2023

Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has been arrested outside the High Court in the capital Islamabad.

The security forces have tried to detain him on a number of previous occasions at his Lahore residence, but were blocked by his supporters.

Khan was appearing in court on charges of corruption, which he says are politically motivated.

He was ousted as PM in April last year and has been campaigning for early elections since then while dozens of cases have been brought against him.

General elections are due to be held later this year.
