Pakistani Taliban negotiators have condemned the failure of government representatives to meet them in Islamabad.

Preliminary peace efforts got off to a chaotic start, after the government side asked for clarification about the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) team.

In January more than 100 people, including many soldiers, died in Taliban attacks across the country. Thousands have been killed in recent years.

Aleem Maqbool meets some of the families left behind.
