A supporter of Pakistan’s Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) political party, holds a poster of Altaf Hussain as he chants slogans along with others to show solidarity with their leader, in Karachi yesterday. About 2,000 of his supporters rallied in support of Hussain but elsewhere the city was in lockdown, with markets and petrol stations closed and its usually chaotic and bustling streets empty of traffic. A spokesman for London police said Hussain remained in custody where he is being questioned on suspicion of money laundering.
