Life in Pakistan's South Waziristan after the Taliban
13 December 2012 Last updated at 16:04 GMT
Pakistan's tribal area of Waziristan has been in the world's focus due to terrorism.
In 2009 Pakistani forces started a military operation in South Waziristan, the hometown of Taliban commanders Baitullah Mehsud and Hakeemullah Mehsud.
Since then, relative peace was restored in the area, but some former residents are still not willing to return to the region.
