LAHORE: The Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) on Friday held a congregation praying for Malala Yousufzai's health after which protests were held against the attack on the 14-year-old- activist, DawnNews reported.

The prayers were attended by party office bearers from Punjab, including office bearers from the PTI's women wing.

The attendees of the congregation took out a procession in Lahore's Garden Town area after Friday prayers.

The protesters shouted anti-US slogans alleging  that American conspiracies were at play behind the incidents of terrorism in Pakistan.

The PTI rally demanded the arrest of Malala's attackers and said that those killing innocent children were not Muslims but were in fact the agents of anti-Islam forces.
