At least 15 people were killed and scores injured on Saturday as violence erupted ahead of a rally by Pakistan's suspended chief justice, a senior security official told media.

"At least 12 people have died in clashes, which are continuing in seven separate parts of the city, and three were killed earlier in targeted attacks," the official said on condition of anonymity.

"There are many areas where injured people are lying in the road and ambulances cannot reach there."
