Thousands of farmers protesting for land rights in the Okara district of the Punjab province were met by riot police, tear gas, and arrests.
Witnesses said one protester, a seventeen-year-old boy, was killed after having a bad reaction to being gassed by police.
Four thousand demonstrating farmers were arrested who are tenants on military-owned farms.
According to several tenants of the farmlands, farmers are demanding ownership of twenty-seven-thousand hectares of farmland currently owned by the military. Farmers said that their families have lived and worked on these lands for generations.
