Pakistani security forces on Monday cleared hundreds of anti-government protesters from the state broadcasting company after they seized the building and cut transmissions, according to an AFP journalist at the scene.

Demonstrators seeking the overthrow of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif stormed Pakistan Television and occupied the building for around half an hour before being removed.
