In Pakistan, authorities arrested Muslim cleric Khadim Hussain Rizvi and over 1,000 of his supporters in a crackdown on protests over the recent acquittal of a Christian woman previously sentenced to death for blasphemy. Aasia Bibi was released last month after originally being convicted in 2010. Massive protests followed the release, led by Rizvi’s Tehreek-e-Labbaik party, disrupting major cities and thoroughfares around the country.
