Pakistan 'takes over' Taliban base

After years of intense fighting, army says it has "gained control" of Bajaur.

    Bajaur, a tribal region in Pakistan, has long been a stronghold of the country's Taliban, until only recently.

    Pakistan says it has defeated the group and finally gained control of Bajaur after years of intense fighting.

    The army general in charge of the offensive says there are no more signs of Taliban fighters there, just a huge stock of weapons and abandoned bunkers.

    Al Jazeera's Kamal Hyder reports from Bajaur.
