Pakistani bomb widows rebuild their lives with new skills

After a devastating bomb blast during the festival of Eid in 2007, people in the village of Sherpao in Pakistan's terrorism-hit Khyberpakhtoonkhwa province were left shattered.

The blast killed all of the men in the village, leaving behind 22 widows and their children.

In this deeply conservative society, life without the man of the house is nearly impossible.

Meena is one of those widows.

She told BBC Urdu's Amber Shamsi her story.
