Fears of More Chaos in Wake of Pakistan PM's Arrest

PM accused of corruption


Pakistani media have predicted more "chaos" and "uncertainty" in the wake of an arrest order against Prime Minister Raza Pervez Ashraf and the ongoing anti-corruption protests in Islamabad.

The country saw an "unprecedented" turn of events yesterday when the Pakistan Supreme Court issued an arrest warrant against Mr Ashraf over corruption cases amid a "long march" led by influential religious scholar Tahirul Qadri.
