ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Officials in Pakistan say the country’s powerful army chief has asked the government to hold negotiations with protesters to settle a mass demonstration outside parliament.

They say Gen. Rasheel Sharif made the request during a meeting today with Shahbaz Sharif, the younger brother of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. The protesters have demanded the premier step down over allegations of fraud in last year’s election.
