A policeman reacts to a barrage of rocks being thrown towards him by anti-government demonstrators near the home of Iftikhar Chaudry, the country's deposed Chief Justice, on February 9, 2008 in Islamabad, Pakistan. Police used water cannons and tear gas to repel demonstrators as they attempted to march to the home of the former Chief Justice who has remained under house arrest since November last year. Pakistanis will go to the polls later this month after months of political and civil turmoil. By Warrick Page/Getty Images.
