Pakistan’s opposition leader, Imran Khan, greeted his supporters outside his home, just hours after violent clashes broke out during a police attempt to arrest him.

He addressed the crowd and took pictures with those gathered near his compound in the city of Lahore.

In one of the videos he can be seen wearing a gas mask. Police fired tear gas shells during the clashes throughout the night.

An official told the BBC that the arrest had been temporarily halted.
