More than 800,000 people have fled a major military offensive against the Taliban in a Pakistani tribal area, officials said Wednesday.
Tens of thousands of families have left the North Waziristan tribal area for the nearby town of Bannu.
Hundreds more have moved further afield to the towns of Lakki Marwat, Karak and Dera Ismail Khan since the attacks began in mid-June.
Officials from the FATA Disaster Management Authority (FDMA) said they were checking registrations for duplicates, meaning the figure may come down.
Some 833,274 people or 66,726 migrating families from North Waziristan were registered in cities of Bannu and Peshawar until Tuesday evening,” Arshad Khan, FDMA director general, told AFP.
Khan said 361,459 of the displaced were children and 248,633 women.
