    A Human Rights Watch report has found that attacks by the Taliban and other armed groups are having a devastating effect on education in Pakistan.

    In Swat Valley, the Pakistani Taliban destroyed more than 450 schools and stopped girls from getting an education six years ago.

    As the children go back to school, many still in live fear because of the bitter memories of the conflict.
