Three senior Pakistan army officers sacked over attacks by ex-PM Khan’s supporters

Three top officers in Pakistan’s army have been fired for failing to prevent deadly riots that erupted across the country last month, according to an army official on Monday.

At least 102 people are being tried in military courts in relation to the violence, army spokesperson Ahmad Sharif Chaudhry said.

Supporters of former Prime Minister Imran Khan attacked army installations after he was arrested on graft allegations on May 9.
