Pakistan ex-PM Imran Khan survives protest march shooting

The former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan has survived what his aides call an assassination attempt, which left one person dead, and injured a number of others.

Mr Khan was shot in the shin during a large rally.

He’d been leading a convoy of supporters towards Islamabad in an attempt to overthrow the government. Mr Khan’s party blamed them for the shooting. Government officials have denied that and condemned the attack.
