Pakistan: Hundreds defy banned Basant kite flying festival

The Basant kite flying festival was banned in Pakistan’s Punjab province in 2007.

The government imposed the ban because of unsafe practices. But despite a police crackdown, every year hundreds of people continue to fly kites from their rooftops.
