Tens of thousands of protesters marched on Pakistan's parliament today, in a bid to depose the prime minister, as the nation's powerful military called for talks to resolve the week-long political drama.

Imran Khan, the former cricket star who leads the PTI party, and preacher Tahir-ul-Qadri say, last year's general election was rigged and have led protests to demand Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif resign.

Their five-day rallies in Islamabad, and the two-day "long marches" from the eastern city of Lahore that preceded them, have piled pressure on the government little more than a year since its landslide victory.
