ISLAMABAD (AP) - Pakistan’s army says it has killed at least 30
Taliban in battles across the troubled northwestern Swat Valley.
Army spokesman Akhtar Abbas says soldiers looking for militants
after a suicide bombing encountered resistance in several areas and
that battles raged into the early morning Monday.
The military has said it is restoring security in the valley
after a three-month operation to retake control of areas overrun by
Taliban militants. Still, suicide attacks and skirmishes continue.
A suicide bomber on Sunday sneaked into a police courtyard in
the valley’s main town and killed 17 cadets while they were
training. The attack was the deadliest since the military regain
control of most of Swat in July.
