Former Pakistan PM Sharif launches defiant processionPakistan's former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif led a defiant procession Wednesday to his party's stronghold in the eastern city of Lahore as thousands rallied along the route, weeks after he was deposed by the Supreme Court. Supporters clogged the streets in Islamabad, waving flags and chanting political slogans as Sharif's convoy headed south to the capital of Punjab province, where he hopes to bring tens of thousands into the streets in a show of force. "The Supreme Court's judgement to disqualify him is disputed, so people have not accepted it," Sharif supporter Arshad Iftikhar, a retired government official, told AFP.
