ISLAMABAD: Urdu language newspaper Ash-Sharq has stopped publishing from Islamabad leaving about 40 employees including 13 journalists jobless. Owned by Yasmeen Majeed, the paper had earlier ceased publishing from Karachi in December.
The managers shut down the Islamabad office on April 14 much to the disappointment of the staff. However, their outstanding salaries have reportedly been paid.
On the other hand, dues of those who left before the newspaper closed down are still to be cleared.
The six-year-old newspaper is currently being published in Lahore where several staff members were recently laid off.
