'Abandoned' in Swat Valley

People angry over slow reconstruction after Pakistan's military drive to oust Taliban.

    Six months after the Pakistani military fought and drove out the Taliban from the Swat Valley in the North West Frontier province, homes remain in ruins.

    People in the Valley say they were promised help with reconstruction, but they have received little assistance so far.

    Al Jazeera's Kamal Hyder reports from Shakar Dara, where many feel they've been abandoned.
