Imran Khan: What we know so far as PM's fate hangs in balance

The fate of Pakistan's prime minister, Imran Khan, hangs in the balance. A decision by the Supreme Court - scheduled for Tuesday - will decide what will happen to the embattled premier following an attempt to oust him from office. Opposition leaders tabled a no-confidence vote against Mr Khan, which was scheduled for Sunday. But the vote was blocked by Mr Khan's own party.

Opposition figures reacted furiously, submitting a petition to the Supreme Court to decide whether the blocking of the no-confidence vote was even legal to begin with. The debacle has riled up the country, prompting many to question how the government managed to get to this point, and what will happen next.
