Mohammed Deif, the shadowy leader of Hamas's armed wing in Gaza, appears to have narrowly survived a fifth attempt to assassinate him, allowing the mastermind of the six-week war on Israel to pursue the conflict from his network of tunnels.
Opposition leader Imran Khan is the man of the hour for thousands of his supporters in Islamabad but those unable to access him can get themselves clicked with his look-alike who has been a big draw at the protest.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Imran Khan addressed his supporters at a massive rally in Islamabad, hours after the deadline set by him for Pakistan prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to step down lapsed. He said no dialogue was possible till Nawaz Sharif steps down as Pakistan's Prime Minister. Meanwhile negotiators from the government and the opposition held talks with protesting populist cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri.
As the Pakistan government and protesters were locked in an intense standoff in the capital, pitched battles were also being fought on the social media with 'IamNawaz' and 'GoNawazGo' trending on Twitter.
