A visit to Karachi's 'most dangerous' neighbourhood

While filming a documentary in Karachi, Pakistan, BBC journalist Benjamin Zand had been told to avoid the neighbourhood of Lyari.

It was the city's "most dangerous" area where "a number of things would probably happen" to him, he was warned.

Benjamin went along anyway - and met some local children he said were "probably the most impressive kids I think I may ever have met".

He was in Pakistan as part of a new BBC series which goes beyond the headlines to see the "other side" of places with bad reputations.

You can see The Other Side of Pakistan on BBC World News on Saturday 26 August 2017.
