ISLAMABAD (AP) -- Anti-government protesters and Pakistani police have clashed once again as the demonstrators pushed into a sprawling government complex in the country's capital in an effort to try to reach the prime minister's official residence.

Pakistani television showed images of the protesters and police clashing on Monday in Islamabad. The protesters could be seen hurling rocks at policemen.

The protesters, who have camped for over two weeks near the complex, made it to a gate that surrounds the prime minister's residence where they were met by paramilitary Rangers and army troops.

The TV reported that the protesters also attacked its building. Its transmission went off the air shortly afterward.

Anti-government cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri and cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan have been leading protests since Aug. 14 calling on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to resign.
