Poets and intellectuals gather in Lahore for Benazir Literary Festival.

The inaugural edition of the Benazir Literary Festival is being held in the Pakistani city of Lahore.

While the event celebrates freedom of speech, a crackdown on bloggers and dissenting voices has cast a shadow over this year's edition.

Al Jazeera's Kamal Hyder reports from Lahore.
