Imran Khan discusses government crackdown on his party

Imran Khan, Pakistan’s ousted prime minister, has been caught in a political storm for the past several weeks. He was arrested by paramilitary forces on May 9 on corruption charges, then released when the Supreme Court stepped in. The arrest triggered protests by his supporters, followed by a massive crackdown on his party and thousands of arrests. Khan joined Geoff Bennett to discuss the turmoil.
