Pakistani court grants Khan bail in terrorism cases
A Pakistani court has granted former prime minister Imran Khan a week-long bail in two new cases in which he faces terrorism charges, officials say.
The ruling gave the embattled ousted prime minister and now popular opposition leader another brief reprieve from arrest.
Since his ouster in a no-confidence vote in Parliament last April, the 70-year-old former cricket player turned politician has become embroiled in a series of legal cases against him, including on terrorism charges and graft while in office.
Khan’s standoff with the government of his successor, Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif, has turned increasingly violent in recent days.
