Pakistan: PM Khan’s security beefed up after reported assassination plot


Pakistan’s Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry said on Friday that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s security had been increased after security agencies reported a plot to assassinate the prime minister.

Chaudhry said in a tweet that the government had taken this decision in light of these reports.


This comes as Khan faces a no-confidence vote from opposition parties seeking to oust him. He lost the numerical majority in the parliament after his main ally quit the government on Wednesday.

Khan also said a “Western country” is backing his ousting because he visited Russia to meet President Vladimir Putin last month.
