Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi have been sentenced to 14 years in prison, a day after the former Pakistani prime minister was jailed to 10 years.

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

On Tuesday he was sentenced to 10 years for leaking state secrets, and on Wednesday jailed another 14 in a separate graft case.

Khan has said the numerous cases against him are politically motivated.
