Pakistan’s former prime minister Imran Khan detained in Islamabad

Imran Khan, the former prime minister of Pakistan, has been detained, local media has reported.

Mr Khan is said to have appeared in court in Islamabad on corruption charges.

Footage online, verified by Sky News, shows Mr Khan being led into an armoured vehicle by security forces.

The 72-year-old was ousted from power last year, and has spent his time campaigning against his successor.

Speaking anonymously to the Associated Press, anti-corruption officials said Pakistan’s National Accountability Bureau had put out a warrant for Mr Khan’s arrest last week in a separate case, but he had not obtained bail.
