ISLAMABAD (AP) — Officials say a Pakistani court has ruled in defense of former Prime Minister Imran Khan, granting him protection from arrest until next week. Monday’s development comes as lawsuits mounted against the ousted premier, with police charging him with incitement to violence in several cases when his followers clashed with the security forces this month. The latest reprieve for Khan comes as a political crisis roils Pakistan, pitting the former cricket star turned Islamist politician against the government of his successor Shahbaz Sharif and spilling into violence in the streets. Khan was ousted through a no-confidence vote in Parliament last April.
