Superhero 'Burka Avenger' divides Pakistan

A new superhero, who is set to make her debut on Pakistani television, has provoked a mixed reaction.

The 'Burka Avenger' is a mild-mannered Pakistani teacher with secret martial arts skills.

She uses a flowing black burka to hide her identity as she fights local thugs seeking to shut down the girls' school where she works.
