Swat prisoners rejoin Pakistan society

Army conducts programme to reintegrate men taken prisoner during military campaign in the region.

    The military later set up a programme to try to reintegrate hundreds of the men back into society.

    As Al Jazeera's Kamal Hyder reports from the area, the programme is having some degree of success.
