Cleric leading Pakistan protests reaches deal with government
ISLAMABAD Jan 17 (Reuters) - A Muslim cleric calling for the Pakistani government to resign said on Thursday he had reached an agreement with the administration and would call halt to the street protests in Islamabad that triggered a political crisis four days ago.
"We have reached an agreement. After getting the prime minister's signature, we will read it in out front of protesters," the cleric, Muhammad Tahirul Qadri, who has a history of ties to the military, told his supporters.
