SWABI, PAKISTAN - JULY 09: A young Pakistani girl internally displaced from Swat, sleeps in her mothers arms as she receives treatment for dehydration in the Bahria Town mobile field hospital at the Yar Hussain UNHCR camp in Chota Lahore on July 9, 2009 in Swabi district, Pakistan. Approximately 3 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) have been created as a result of an on-going military operation against the Taliban. Pakistani forces are battling militants in the Swat valley, Lower Dir and Buner. New camps are sprouting up while others continue to grow as people shift away from the city of Mardan where thousands were living with families and schools as the UNHCR and other aid agencies struggle to deal with the needs of so many. The refugees are facing extremely harsh living conditions in the searing heat in over crowded camps. (Photo by Daniel Berehulak/Getty Images)
