At approximately 1726 EST, reports began to emerge that former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and two guards were attacked while visiting a cafe in London. While none of the entourage were injured, a substance appears to have been thrown on their vehicle. One suspect wearing a HAZMAT suit and a message printed on the back has been arrested.

Sharif is a Pakistani businessman and politician who has served as the Prime Minister of Pakistan for three non-consecutive terms. He is the longest-serving prime minister of Pakistan, having served a total of more than 9 years across three tenures. Each term has ended in his ousting.
