Eleven Pakistani police officers, who were taken hostage by supporters of a banned group during street protests in Lahore, have been released, authorities said. Supporters of the right-wing Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) had allegedly taken the officers captive on Sunday as part of their campaign to get the French ambassador expelled from Pakistan. A video of the hostages as they were being released circulated on social media, showing some of the officers bloodied and bruised with bandages around their heads.
