Rebuilding Buddha in Pakistan's Swat

Archaeologists are working to restore a statue that the Pakistani Taliban failed to destroy in 2008.

    An Italian archaeologist has travelled to Pakistan to try and restore a centuries-old rock carving of Buddha.

    Five years ago, the local chapter of the Taliban had tried to blow up the monument near the town of Jahanabad.
