An internally displaced Pakistani woman holds her child as she waits for transport at a bus terminal in Karachi to return her home to the Swat Valley region on September 29, 2009. A military offensive forced 1.9 million civilians from their homes. The UN has said 1.65 million people had returned after the government declared the area free of insurgents. In April, Pakistan launched a military offensive against the Taliban in the northwest districts of Buner, Lower Dir and Swat after militants advanced to within 100 kilometres (60 miles) of the capital Islamabad.
