  • A bomb explodes in crowded grounds of central mosque in the northern Nigerian city of Kano, many casualties reported – witnesses via Reuters

There’s been a mixed reaction to the Pakistani Supreme Court’s decision to order the arrest of the prime minister over a corruption inquiry.

Raja Pervez Ashraf is wanted in connection with a case linked to power projects, plunging the country into fresh political turmoil.

The government is already under pressure from a growing protest led by a cleric with strong ties to the army, raising fears among some that the military is plotting to force out a civilian leader.

Even if Ashraf is ousted, the ruling coalition led by the Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) has a majority in parliament and lawmakers can simply elect another prime minister.
