The first formal meeting between the Pakistan government and a Taliban-nominated team has begun at an "undisclosed location", officials say.

They are due to start charting a "roadmap" for peace talks to end a decade-long insurgency.

Militants from the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan have been waging an insurgency inside Pakistan since 2007.

The talks initiative was announced last week by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, following a spate of attacks.

Originally scheduled for 4 February, the meeting was delayed after the government side asked for clarification about the composition of the team representing the Pakistan Taliban.
