There are few places in the world, if any, that present more challenges for working journalists than Pakistan. The country was declared "the world's deadliest country for the press" in 2010 by the Committee to Protect Journalists. Reporters Without Borders calls Pakistan's Swat Valley, which sits on the country's volatile Afghan border, a "valley of fear."
But for journalist Shaheen Buneri, Pakistan - specifically, the Swat Valley - was home for his entire personal and professional life. That is, until last year.
