Pakistan's only ski resort holds week-long snow festival

Tourists have been taking to the slopes of Pakistan's only ski resort in the Swat Valley - an area previously controlled by the Taliban.

The Malam Jabba resort, in the north-west of Pakistan, was destroyed by the Taliban in 2009.

It has now reopened and this year hundreds of people from across the country have come to celebrate the week-long snow festival.
