    Pakistan's military is handing over security of the Swat valley to the local government, but the process is

    fraught with challenges.

    The local chapter of the Pakistani Taliban, for example, continues to launch attacks, meaning that the army

    cannot fully withdraw its forces.

    More than two years after the military ended an operation there, the local police are still not in a position to take over responsibility for security. Residents, meanwhile, are still trying to rebuild their lives.

    Al Jazeera's Kamal Hyder reports from Kabal, in Pakistan's Swat valley.
