Swat's displaced struggle for cash

Pakistanis still trying to rebuild their lives a year after a military offensive.



    Almost one year after the Pakistani army regained control of the Swat valley in the northwest of the country, many people are still struggling to rebuild their lives.

    But progress in areas devastated by the fighting has been slow, and security is still tight.

    Those displaced by the military offensive have told Al Jazeera that the government handouts aimed at helping them rebuild their lives are too little and too difficult to get hold of.
