Sagher Ullah is no stranger to hardships. He lost one of his legs at a young age, and since then he has learnt to negotiate the tough conditions of Pakistan’s remote North Waziristan. However, recent events have pushed Sagher to his limits.
“It would be better to go back home and risk living through the security operation than to stay in this unbearable heat,” he says wearily. Sagher is living in a small two-room rented apartment alongside 25 other people including his immediate family and relatives in the city of Bannu.
