Stuck in a hospital, the Pakistani cricketer turned politician, Imran Khan, is not going to let fractured vertebrae stop him campaigning.
Pakistani cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan was injured after falling off a lift raising him onto a stage at an election rally.
Imran Khan has started his march from Islamabad to Southern Waziristan, a dangerous tribal area of Pakistan currently the target of CIA drone attacks.
The march has been denounced by various Pakistani Taliban factions, but Khan insisted it would go ahead:
This is a peace march, an effort for peace in Pakistan on our part ... We are not going to fight anyone.
Just leaving Islamabad. Thousands of people in cars jeeps and buses coming along. This is already huge and many many more waiting on the way
By defying the government and going ahead with the march we have already succeeded. People joining by the thousand. huge caravan on the move
We have put the issue of drone attacks centre stage globally. Never before has global media focused so much on it
