KARACHI (Reuters) - About 200 protesters clashed on Friday with Pakistan police outside the French consulate in the southern city of Karachi after a demonstration against the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo turned violent.

A Reuters journalist said protesters stoned police and fired shots after security forces used water cannon and tear gas. At least one person was wounded.
