A charged mob of around 1,000 people besieged an Ahmadi place of worship in Chakwal, Punjab on Monday.

At least one Ahmadi, who was present inside the place of worship, died of cardiac arrest, whereas the protesters claimed six of their fellows were injured in the cross firing. Those present at the place of worship locked the building from inside and refused to concede control of the structure until police managed to prevail on them.

A series of pictures show how the situation escalated before police and army personnel were able to disperse the mob.
