Imran Khan barred from Pakistan TV as he faces arrest:


Pakistan has barred its television channels from airing former premier Imran Khan’s speeches, the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority said, in an order that accused the opposition leader of “baseless accusation­s and spreading hate speech” against state institutio­ns and officers. Hours before the ban was announced, police tried to arrest Khan, 70, on a warrant issued by a court last week after he didn’t appear in a hearing for a complaint over his failure to declare his assets. Police said Khan was evading arrest.
