Fleeing Pakistanis fear harsh Afghan winter

Thousands of Pakistanis who crossed border amid army offensive fear already harsh conditions in camps are set to worsen.

    Thousands of Pakistanis have fled to Afghanistan's Khost province, trying to escape the army's offensive against the Pakistani Taliban in Waziristan.

    Families are already living in makeshift camps in areas scattered with mines and IEDs, and as winter approaches, conditions are set to deteriorate.
