Pakistan mulls law to gag media

Government plans new legislation to stifle criticism.

In Pakistan, the media has been able to operate with relative freedom only in recent times.

But now the government wants to reign in news organisations.

Authorities want a new law that would ban certain pictures and videos criticising the government and security forces.
