At least 8 people have been killed in clashes between Pakistani police and supporters of a prominent Islamic scholar in the city of Lahore.

Dozens more were injured as police fired shots and tear gas to disperse protesters at the offices of Tahi-rul Qadri. His supporters threw stones.

Reports say, 2 women died in the riots which are now under control.

Qadri, who is based in Canada, plans to return to Pakistan next week to lead a crusade against corrupt politicians.

He led a "long march" on Islamabad in January last year, but the protest fizzled out with little result.
