The Pakistani Taliban has announced a month-long ceasefire aimed at reviving stalled peace talks with the government.

Pakistan's government welcomed the announcement as a "positive development", and said it was prepared to resume talks.

The talks broke down last month, after Taliban-linked militants said they had killed 23 soldiers they were holding.

This triggered air strikes by the Pakistani military against suspected militant hideouts in the north-west.
