KARACHI: The protest sit-ins by a religious party which had bought life to a standstill in several cities across the country a day earlier have now started ending, as roads are gradually opening for traffic.
Several roads, however, will remain closed today too as the religious party will continue protesting, but in limited areas.
In Islamabad, mobile service has been suspended at Faizabad Interchange and its environs and a heavy contingent of Rangers, FC and police has been deployed.
Containers have been delivered to Faizabad Interchange while mobile service has been suspended in view of the protest. Murree Road has been closed by the administration.
