Pakistani people gathered on Sunday, upon call from former Prime Minister Imran Khan, who urged for country-wide protests against high inflation rates.

Khan addressed the protesters who gathered in various cities of the country.

Pakistan is in dire need of external financial support, and talks between the government and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) are underway in Doha.

Khan, who was removed after a parliamentary no-trust motion, has pressed his demand for snap elections, which are otherwise due in 2023.

The government has rejected his demands, announcing that the current setup would continue until August next year.
