A delayed flight from Karachi to Dubai led to passenger demonstrations at the airport. The protest also delayed the departure of other international flights as passengers gathered around the counters of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) that stopped the process of boarding.
Earlier, the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) said that fog will encompass plain areas of Punjab, few districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and upper Sindh for the next few days during the night and morning hours.
