Up to one million children had their education interrupted when Pakistan’s army went to war against Taliban fighters in the valley earlier this year.

More than 500 schools were destroyed during the clashes, and others no longer have windows or walls, while others are missing their desks. 

But, as Kamal Hyder reports, the battle Swat residents now face is to re-open schools before winter sets in.
