Pakistan airports in chaos over PIA strike. Pakistan’s airports were plunged into chaos Wednesday as employees of the national flag carrier protested the deaths of two colleagues killed while demonstrating against plans to privatise the airline.

All of Pakistan International Airline’s foreign and domestic flights were suspended, and employees held strikes at airports in major cities across the country.

At Karachi’s international airport, demonstrators waved placards and chanted slogans against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, calling on the leader to reverse a bill that converted the carrier into a public limited company.
