In this Friday, March 29, 2013 photo, tribal villagers stand at an army checkpoint in Tank, the border town of South Waziristan, the Pakistani tribal area bordering Afghanistan. After battling Taliban militants in the tribal areas bordering Afghanistan for over a decade, the Pakistani military is engaged in a new fight. This time it’s for the hearts and minds of the people who are returning to the region after living for years as refugees in their own country and harbor a longstanding mistrust of the central government.(AP Photo/B.K.
