ISLAMABAD (AP) — A Pakistani TV reporter says his driver was killed when police fired to disperse protesters of an anti-Islam film who were torching a cinema in the northwest city of Peshawar.
Kashif Mahmood says he was sitting with the driver, Mohammad Amir, in their vehicle covering the protest when police opened fire Friday.
He said three bullets hit the vehicle, including one that critically wounded Amir. He later died at a hospital.
The TV channel ARY showed footage of Amir at the hospital as doctors tried to save him. It also showed the windshield of the vehicle shattered by several gunshots.
Police could not immediately be reached for comment.
