A group of Taliban militants in a Pakistani tribal area bordering Afghanistan say they have scrapped a peace deal with the government.
The faction, led by Hafiz Gul Bahadur, in North Waziristan withdrew from the deal as the army stepped its offensive against the Taliban in the north-west.
The announcement comes a day after his men ambushed a Pakistani military convoy, killing 16 soldiers.
