Pakistan army battles for Buner


Pakistan's army says it has recaptured many of the areas recently overtaken by the Taleban in the north-west of the country.

The militants took control of a key town in the Buner district, just 100 km from Islamabad last week, prompting fears that they could soon threaten the capital.

Mark Dummett speaks with students from Islamabad about the conflict.
