2 provinces in Pakistan ban protests

A government official says Pakistan's Sindh province has banned protests ahead of planned anti-government rallies.
Sindh Home Secretary Arif Ahmad Khan announced the decision after a similar announcement came from Punjab province.
The Sindh ban on public gatherings of more than four people is to last for 15 days.
The government has also arrested scores of activists ahead of the march. The protest bans are sure to further anger people already unhappy with the shaky pro-Western government's failure to restore a group of judges.
Lawyers leading the anti-government march have said they will not be deterred.
