An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, on Saturday granted bail to jailed former Prime Minister Imran Khan in 12 cases linked to attacks on military sites in May last year. Khan's aide, former Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, was granted bail in 13 cases. The duo was indicted in the cases on February 6. Violence erupted after Khan was arrested in an alleged corruption case. The rioters allegedly damaged several government buildings and military installations, including an army headquarters.
