SWABI, PAKISTAN – JULY 01: Internally displaced children recite the Koran at a Madrassa in the Shah Mansoor IDP camp on July 1, 2009 in Swabi District, Pakistan. Approximately 3 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) have been created as a result from recent fighting and ongoing military operations against the Taliban. Pakistani forces are battling militants in the Swat valley, Lower Dir and Buner. New camps are sprouting up while others continue to grow as people shift away from the city of Mardan where thousands were living with families and schools as the UNHCR and other aid agencies struggle to deal with the needs of so many. The refugees have fled from Swat, Buner, and Lower Dir facing extremely harsh living conditions in the searing heat in over crowded camps. (Photo by Daniel Berehulak/Getty Images)
