As you probably know this site is part of a global network of blogs and from time to time something happens that requires the attention of more than just the people in one specific city. Something like that is happening right now. We’re just getting the reports from our bloggers in Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad right now but Emergency Rule
Martial Law has been declared in Pakistan and the Press and Media has been ordered to cease broadcasting and STFU. The country is expecting a presidential address later in the day. Here are a few specific posts to look at, but keep checking the above links for the most up to the moment info.
– Karachi: Emergency Declared in Pakistan?
– Lahore: Emergency Rule – CONFIRMED
– Islamabad: Emergency Rule
(quick update: the initial reports we heard were stating martial law, but in fact it’s Emergency Rule which is not quite as bad, though press has been cut off.)
