Rebuilding Buddha in Pakistan's Swat

Archaeologists are working to restore a statue that the Pakistani Taliban failed to destroy in 2008.

    An Italian archaeologist has travelled to Pakistan to try and restore a centuries-old rock carving of Buddha.

    Five years ago, the local chapter of the Taliban had tried to blow up the monument near the town of Jahanabad.

    Al Jazeera's Kamal Hyder reports from the Swat Valley, in northern Pakistan.
