Former Pakistani captain and prime minister Imran Khan has been sentenced to 10 years in jail, in a case in which he was charged with leaking state secrets.

Khan, who was ousted by his opponents as Prime Minister in 2022, is already serving a three-year jail term after being convicted of corruption.

He has called all the charges against him politically motivated.

The conviction under the secrets act, comes the week before general elections in which he is barred from standing.
