Pakistan reopens ski resort

Opening comes after years of fighting between the Pakistani military and the Swat-based Taliban.

    The Swat area of Pakistan is holding a snow festival to attract tourists back to the region.

    Visitors were rare during years of fighting between the Pakistani military and the Swat-based Taliban but people could soon be flying down the slopes again.
