Campaigning in Pakistan in defiance of Taliban

As Pakistan counts down to general elections in May, the Taliban is stepping up attacks on politicians who oppose them.

There have been a series of deadly strikes on candidates from the moderate Awami National Party, known as the ANP.

A week ago Orla Guerin met one its candidates, Haroon Bilour, who can barely campaign in public because of the risk.

Two days later, he was targeted in a suicide attack which killed 19 people.

Orla Guerin has been back to Peshawar to speak to him again.
