    As the Pakistani military continues its offensive against Taliban fighters in South Waziristan, the government and international aid agencies have set up food distribution centres to cope with the influx of those displaced by the fighting.

    It is estimated that more than 100,000 people have already fled the combat zone, many in anticipation of the offensive. Authorities say that number could double in the coming weeks.
