    An estimated 200,000 people have fled the Khyber and Kurram regions of northern Pakistan due to violence, as the Pakistani military moves to put down armed groups linked to the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan.

    Some have moved into the homes of relatives in other parts of the country, but many of the poorest have ended up in a refugee camp on the outskirts of Peshawar once used by Afghan families fleeing years of conflict across the border.

    With temperatures set to rise, conditions inside the tents are already unbearable.
