Pakistan army chief steps in to solve political crisis

Pakistan's army chief stepped into the political struggle between the country's embattled Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and the opposition demanding his resignation.

The coup-prone nation has been gripped by mass rallies for more than two weeks and the new intervention suggests a likely transfer of power from the politicians to the army.

In the past, Pakistan has repeatedly swung between military rule and democracy. Sharif himself was toppled in a coup in 1999 during his previous tenure.
