On a normal day in October 2005 one of the world's most beautiful places was turned into a living hell. Balakot ,located on a major geological fault line about 200km (120 miles) north of the country's capital, Islamabad. was reduced to rubble. I arrived 3 weeks to the hour after the main quake destoyed the city. The images shown here will give a small insight into what happened there . The world has forgotten the pledges which were made but still the death continued as a result of broken promises from all over the world. 80,000 people died within the first few weeks and the death toll continued to rise.
