Pakistan's refugees in limbo

Pakistan struggles to help its country's internally displaced refugees.

    The Pakistani military's latest campaign against Taliban fighters in South Waziristan has forced more than half of the province's population to register as refugees.

    South Waziristan's population was 600 thousand just a few weeks ago, but no longer.

    Al Jazeera's Kamal Hyder reports how the UN is coping with the situation, and investigates the scant assistance coming to refugees from official authorities.
