Mian Khursheed driving by
'The Reuters multimedia team in Islamabad set up interviews for a feature looking at a military-run de-radicalization centre in Pakistanâs Swat Valley. Taliban militants once controlled the area, but a military operation in 2009 drove them out. Policymakers felt long-term stability could only be achieved if they fought not just militants but their ideology as well, so they set up the Mashal centre to de-radicalize and reform captured militants.
'We left Islamabad early in the morning and, after driving through winding mountain roads, we passed through the area of Dargai where I saw a truck that had tipped backwards. It was overloaded with wheat straw and the driver was trying to stop it from completely tipping over. I got out of the car and shot a few frames. It became even more interesting when people passing by started to help the truck's crew, trying to pull it back with ropes. It was a really unusual scene.'
