KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Saturday started its two-day sit-in in front of Karachi Port against the US drone attacks in tribal areas of Pakistan, and logistic support en- route Pakistan to the Nato troops in Afghanistan.

Thousands of people from different walks of life and political activists gathered at the Native Jetty Bridge near Karachi Port on Saturday, holding flags and placards. They chanted slogans against the drone attacks and the US interference into internal affairs of Pakistan.

Strict security arrangements were made by the Sindh government to avert any untoward incident. Heavy contingents of police and rangers were deployed around the venue while the adjacent roads were blocked by placing empty containers on roads.

Addressing the protesters PTI leaders said that the government should take action against the involvement of American spy agencies in the country and switch the so-called war on terror.
