Pakistan debuts women's kabaddi team

Country sends women to participate in the challenging Kabaddi World Cup for the first time.

    Pakistan has sent its first women's team to India for the Kabaddi World Cup.

    It is a tough competition involving tag team wrestling, and it is the first time they have sent women to take part.

    In a country where religion is sometimes at odds with modern values, team members say they have found a lot of support.
