Little Lahore camp

A 10-year-old boy, Anwar Khalil, waits to get a chunk ice at the Swabi camp where about 20,000 people displaced from Swat are living in tents in extreme heat, without water or power. They are forced to queue for hours for food. Some refugees, nearly all Pashtuns, have made their way to other parts of the country, such as Karachi, where tension with other ethnic groups is surfacing.
