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.
