Pakistan's Long March: Help Report On It

04/11/2009 05:12 am 05:12:01 | Updated May 25, 2011

Lawyers and opposition political parties to the current Pakistani government, led by Nawaz Sharif, are planning a march from Karachi to Islamabad this week to demand the reinstatement of a supreme court justice and other judges ousted from office by former President Pervez Musharraf.

Pakistan's Interior Ministry Chief Rehman Malik has accused Sharif of sedition by inciting anti-government sentiments in prior speeches and has vowed that the government will respond with force should any deaths occur or public property be damaged during the march.

(UPDATE: Pakistan arrested dozens of lawyers and activists Wednesday.)
