Officials in Pakistan say the displacement of more than 800,000 people from the tribal region of North Waziristan - where the Pakistani military is battling militants - has led to a health crisis in the northwest of the country.

Many of the refugee families have relocated to the town of Bannu, where under-equipped hospitals are being overwhelmed with patients.

Shahzeb Jillani reports from Bannu.
