ISLAMABAD: Protestors demonstrated against the hike in public transport fares in Islamabad on Friday.

The demonstrators burnt tyres and damaged public property.

Traffic was also disrupted on Islamabad’s Murree Road, as protestors blocked the Faizabad area.

Meanwhile, police and Rangers took positions in Faizabad and police resorted to aerial firing and tear gas to disperse the demonstrators.

Rawalpindi police was also requested for assistance as Islamabad police ran short of tear gas shells, police source said.

A vehicle of the UN inspection team probing the murder of Benazir Bhutto was also attacked by the demonstrators.

The UN team returned to the airport in Islamabad after the attack and requested for security from the United States’ embassy, sources said. — DawnNews
