Pakistan anti-terrorism court OKs arrest of ex-PM Imran Khan

An anti-terrorism court in Pakistan has approved the arrest of former prime minister Imran Khan in a case related to protester violence at an army building in the city of Lahore, broadcaster Ary News reported on Wednesday, citing sources.

Khan is currently jailed after a graft conviction. Wednesday's ruling relates to violence that erupted during Khan's previous arrest in May on graft charges, unrelated to his present conviction. He has denied any wrongdoing in both cases.
