Pakistan's government is due to resume talks with the Taliban shortly, aimed at ending the group's long-running insurgency.
One area which will be watching the outcome closely is South Waziristan, a tribal area which the Pakistani military re-took from the Taliban in 2010.
Many of the insurgents there retreated to neighbouring North Waziristan.
