Pakistan says it will stop air strikes against the Taliban, after the militants announced a month-long ceasefire.

However, it said it "reserved the right to respond to any violent activity" carried out by the Taliban.

The Taliban announced the ceasefire - aimed at reviving stalled peace talks with government - on Saturday.

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