Tens of thousands of people are fleeing North Waziristan tribal region in north-west Pakistan after the army began an offensive against militants.

A camp for displaced people has been set up near Bannu but it lacks food, water and electricity.

Many displaced families are seeking shelter with friends and relatives.

A curfew has been lifted to allow people in North Waziristan to escape - and officials expect thousands more to flee to safety in the coming days.

The army says at least 160 militants had been killed since it began air strikes on militant targets in Shawal and other areas of North Waziristan on Sunday.
