POLICE AND MERCHANTS ARGUE DURING A PROTEST IN ISLAMABAD.
Pakistani police argue with striking merchants during a protest in Islamabad May 31. The merchants blocked traffic by burning tyres on the streets after police arrested about eight merchants for allegedly forcing other shopkeepers to close their businesses. The protest was held by merchants to force Pakistan's military-led government to back away from carrying out a landmark survey to widen the country's tax net.
