Negotiators meet over mass Pakistan rallies
September 03, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

ISLAMABAD — Negotiators for protesters holding a mass demonstration outside of Pakistan's parliament have met with a group of Pakistani politicians trying to end the crisis.

A group of politicians met Wednesday with representatives of the two anti-government groups. In a news conference, one of the politicians, Sirajul Haq, said there had been some success in their talks, although he urged caution.

The politicians are all from the opposition, not the government. However, some of the leaders of the anti-government protesters are also expected to meet later Wednesday with the government.

Anti-government protesters converged on Islamabad more than two weeks ago, demanding Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif step down over allegations of vote-rigging in the 2013 election.

The protests are led by opposition politician Imran Khan and fiery cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri.
