Pakistan coup averted

Supporters of Pakistani cleric Tahir-ul Qadri wave flags on the third day of the protest rally in Islamabad on January 16, 2013. Pakistan's opposition parties on Wednesday backed the government against any "extra-constitutional changes," and the government announced it will hold fresh elections on May 15, likely staving off any threat of a soft coup engineered by the military.
