Hunting with eagles in Kazakhstan

Banned under Soviet rule, an age-old nomadic tradition is enjoying a revival on the Kazakh steppes.

    Winter in Kazakhstan means snow and bitter cold.

    But, it is also the best time for hunting with eagles or birds of prey, an age-old nomadic tradition that was outlawed under communism.

    Now the government and others are reviving the tradition.

    Al Jazeera's Robin Forestier-Walker reports from Kaskelen in southern Kazakhstan.
