Thousands of people have fled to Afghanistan after the Pakistani Army began an offensive against Taliban fighters in the northern Waziristan province.

Many of those who have fled are being taken in at a refugee camp in Khost province, 20kms from the Pakistani border.

The refugees are in need of medical assitance, water and basic amenities. One refugee has already died of exhaustion.
