Mobile phone footage showing suspected members of the Pakistani Taleban flogging a teenage girl is being circulated in Pakistan. The recording strengthens fears that the provincial government has capitulated to militants in the north- western Swat valley.
It has agreed to implement Sharia law there as part of a peace deal. The video shows men who appear to be from the Pakistani Taleban holding down the girl and hitting her with a strap for about two minutes.
The source of the footage has not been verified by the BBC.
