Pakistan civilians hit by army offensive

About 800,000 civilians have fled North Waziristan since the military began its operation against Taliban fighters.

    Fighting between Pakistan's army and the Taliban in North Waziristan has forced about 800,000 people from their homes.

    Many who have fled will have no houses to return to - they have been destroyed in the military operation which began three weeks ago.
