Integrating Taliban fighters

Donors' meet in Kabul next week to discuss ways to integrate fighters who lay down arms.

    Pakistan's army has been engaged in fierce fighting with the Taliban in Kurrum, near the Afghan border, for over a year.

    Those operations have meant that Taliban groups in Afghanistan have lost a safe haven.

    It is one of a number of strategies by the US-led alliance and governments in the region to get the Taliban to lay down their arms.

    Integrating the Taliban into politics will be one of the main topics at a donors' conference in Kabul on Tuesday.
