Pakistan: Protesters sleeping rough in anti-government rally

Thousands of demonstrators are camping outside the Pakistani parliament in Islamabad, demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif over allegations of corruption.

Mr Sharif has denied the allegations, but the protesters say they will not leave until their demands are met.

They have been sleeping rough and braving unhygienic conditions since the rally started in Lahore last week.

BBC Urdu's Nosheen Abbas visited the protest site.
