巴基斯坦警察攻击报道冲突的记者 Police Attack Journalists Covering Pakistan Protests

Pakistani police have attacked television crews and other journalists covering clashes between anti-government protesters and police in Islamabad.

A VOA correspondent in Pakistan's capital says several cameramen with Pakistani news organizations have been wounded and reporters have been severely beaten by police.

A minister close to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has condemned the attacks on journalists, as have news organizations across the country.

Pakistan's military chief, General Raheel Sharif, has called a Sunday meeting of his corps commanders in the wake of the continued violence.

The protesters are demanding Sharif resign, alleging massive fraud in the May 2013 election that brought Sharif to power. 

 International observers have said the vote was largely free and fair.

 

巴基斯坦警方开始在首都伊斯兰堡镇压报道反政府示威者和警方冲突的电视以及其它媒体的记者。

在伊斯兰堡的一位美国之音记者说,巴基斯坦媒体的一些摄像人员星期天被打伤,一些记者受到警察的严厉殴打。

巴基斯坦政府一位与谢里夫总理关系密切的部长谴责对记者的打压。巴基斯坦各地的媒体也发出谴责。

星期六暴力冲突发生之后,巴基斯坦军队总司令谢里夫召开高级军事将领会议。

抗议者要求谢里夫辞职,指称谢里夫获胜的2013年5月大选存在大规模舞弊。

国际观察人士说,那次选举基本自由公正。
