Pakistani supporters of cricketer-turned politician Imran Khan and Canadian cleric Tahir ul Qadri clash with riot police amidst teargas during an anti-government protest in Islamabad on September 1, 2014. Hundreds of protesters trying to topple Pakistan’s government briefly seized the state broadcaster on September 1, intensifying the political crisis gripping the nuclear-armed nation. Deadly clashes since the weekend have raised the spectre of military intervention which gained ground after one disillusioned opposition leader said the protesters were acting according to a plan devised by the army.
