Pakistan: Abuses in mineral-rich Balochistan province

Pakistan's many crises have overshadowed a nationalist insurgency which has killed at least 1,000 people since 2008.

The southwestern province of Balochistan is one of the most under-developed regions in the country and has become the site of a long-running battle between separatists and security forces.

The government maintains that killings in the region are due to inter-tribal violence, but human rights groups say state security is behind the killings.

Shoaib Hasan reports.
