Pakistan anti-government protesters besiege parliament

ISLAMABAD, (PNA/PTI) — Thousands of anti-government protesters demanding resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday besieged the parliament building of Pakistan, trapping dozens of lawmakers inside.

Canada-based cleric Tahirul Qadri asked his supporters to guard all entry and exit points of the building and not let anyone move in or out until Sharif resigns.
