Pakistan air campaign displaces civilians

Thousands flee North Waziristan as military offensive targets anti-government fighters in country's northwest.

    Nawaz Sharif, Pakistan's prime minister, says an offensive against anti-government fighters in the northwest will clear the country of what he calls "terrorists" and restore peace.

    More than a hundred fighters have been killed in the air strikes that began in North Waziristan on Saturday. But the campaign has also displaced thousands of civilians.
