Thousands of anti-government protesters armed with wire cutters and backed by cranes marched on Pakistan's parliament Thursday, planning to remove barriers blocking them from soldiers guarding the seat of the country's government. Pakistani television channels showed live footage of the troops taking positions in the so-called "Red Zone," which also holds the president and prime minister's ceremonial homes and many diplomatic posts.
