KARACHI: Commuters on Sharae Pakistan (Super Highway) suffered a massive traffic jam Tuesday evening following a protest by a large number of women against the missing workers of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement - London (MQM).

Protesters gathered at Liaquatabad No 10 and staged a protest against the enforced disappearance of their loved ones belonging to MQM-London. The protest caused a heavy traffic jam. Holding placards in their hands, the women protesters chanted slogans demanding recovery of the missing persons. The protesters also shouted slogans in favour of their party chief Altaf Hussain.
