21 April 2014 Last updated at 14:33 BST

Pakistan's largest private news channel, Geo TV, has called for a robust investigation into the assassination attempt on one of its leading talk show hosts, Hamid Mir.

Mr Mir was shot and wounded on Saturday in a gun attack his family alleges was orchestrated by Pakistan's main intelligence agency, the ISI. The Pakistani army has denied the charges as misleading.

In a BBC interview, the President of Geo TV, Imran Aslam, said the alleged role of the ISI in targeting journalists needs to be probed and debated openly.

He was speaking to the BBC's Shahzeb Jillani in Karachi.
