Nawaz Sharif's supporters celebrate

August 24, 2007

Following the Pakistan Supreme Court ruling that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif can return to the country, his supporters took to the streets with fireworks and other celebrations. Although the attorney-general announced that Sharif will be arrested on his return, that did not dampen the enthusiasm of Sharif's followers.
