Pakistan's ousted PM Imran Khan leads protest march in Islamabad
Imran Khan leads a convoy of thousands of protestors toward Pakistan's capital with clashes breaking out with police.
Clashes broke out between police and protestors in Pakistan's capital of Islamabad after Pakistan's ousted PM, Imran Khan, led a convoy of protestors that numbered in the thousands, which the new government attempted to shut down.
Since he was ousted from power after a no-confidence vote last month, the former PM has been staging mass rallies, and reminding people of the "foreign conspiracy" that led to his ousting from office.
Khan called for supporters of his Tahreek-i-Insaf (PTI) party to gather in Pakistan's capital in protest until fresh elections are called again.
In a crowd of more than 20,000 supporters, Khan said "No obstacle can stop us, we will cross all the barriers and will reach... Islamabad."
Pakistani PM Shehbaz Sharif's new government called the rally an attempt to "divide the nation and promote chaos," pledging to stop it from entering the city.
Roads surrounding Islamabad were blocked off with shipping containers. Still, clashes took place between police and protestors trying to clear the roads.
