Faisalabad: The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) announces a country-wide day of mourning to protest the killing of its supporter during a clash with PML-N supporters and police in Faisalabad.

PTI activists have also staged a protest in Karachi outside the Karachi Press Club.

Workers of the PTI came out in Islamabad to protest the violence in Faisalabad. The enraged activists blocked Abpara Chowk, bringing traffic to a halt. Around 250,000 vehicles are said to travel through this route everyday.

Assistant Commissioner Islamabad says he hasn't received any instructions from the authorities as to how protesters are to be handled.

A similar situation was witnessed in Multan, where PTI workers came out to protest in the city's Nawa Sheher Chowk in protest of the violence by police in Faisalabad.

Protesters were also seen out on the streets in Rahim Yar Khan, burning tyres and chanting slogans against the government.

Meanwhile, a PTI spokesman said that the party had decided to lead a protest demonstration at Mall Road in Lahore as well as outside the Lahore High Court.
