Imran Khan's supporters have resumed their march to Islamabad after an assassination attempt on the former Pakistani Prime Minister.
Why it matters
The assassination attempt on Imran Khan is significant as it highlights the political turmoil in Pakistan and the demand for early elections. The government's offer to launch a judicial commission to investigate the attack shows a willingness to address the issue, but it remains to be seen if the inquiry will be impartial.
What the papers say
The sources agree on the key events of the story, but differ in their portrayal of the government's response to the attack.
How we got here
Imran Khan was leading a protest march towards Islamabad to press the government to announce early elections. He was shot in the leg during the march, and his supporters have resumed the march after a weeklong pause. Khan has accused the current prime minister, interior minister and an army general of plotting to assassinate him.
