ISLAMABAD — Workers of a political party in Pakistan attacked the offices of a local TV channel Monday, leaving one person dead and several others injured.
When the violence started, MQM, a regional party that used to control Pakistan’s commercial hub of Karachi, was staging a hunger strike in front of the Karachi Press Club against what it alleged were extra-judicial killings and disappearances of its activists by law enforcement agencies.
