Pakistan’s government has started demolishing slums in the country’s capital. There are more than two dozen slums in and around Islamabad, housing more than 80,000 people.
The interior minister says it is clearing the settlements because they are illegally constructed and are used by armed fighters who have carried out recent attacks. But the residents are struggling to save the slums.
