By Adrian Croft and Jan Strupczewski BRUSSELS (Reuters) - British Prime Minister David Cameron said he was "delighted" with a promise from Polish premier Donald Tusk, newly elected to a top European Union post, to address his demands for reforming the EU to keep Britain in the bloc. Two months after suffering a severe and very public setback when he failed to block the appointed of another EU leader whom he judged hostile to his reform drive, Cameron was upbeat about the choice of the Polish center-right leader as head of the European Council, the body representing the 28 EU governments. Immediately after being appointed by EU leaders at a Brussels summit on Saturday, Tusk held out an olive branch to Britain, saying he was prepared to compromise on British concerns in order to keep the country in the EU. "I am delighted obviously with what Donald Tusk has said about the importance of reform in the EU and addressing the concerns that Britain has in the EU and I look forward to working with him in the months and the years ahead," Cameron told reporters as he left the meeting early on Sunday.

Supporters of cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan and populist cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri climb a container used to block the entrance of the Prime Minister's house in Islamabad on August 30, 2014At least 300 people were wounded in clashes between police and protesters in Pakistan's capital Islamabad, hospital officials said Sunday, as a fortnight-long political impasse took a violent turn. The violence, which began late Saturday and continued early Sunday, erupted after around 25,000 people marched from parliament to the prime minister's house, where some attempted to remove barricades around it with cranes, an AFP reporter at the scene said. Police responded with tear gas and rubber bullets. Islamabad police chief Khalid Khattak told AFP police exercised restraint but the protesters were armed with axes, wire cutters and hammers.
