The Pakistani army says its operation to remove the Taliban from the Swat valley will take another seven to ten days, but that progress is being made.

The BBC's Barbara Plett, who is in Islamabad, has said that many residents decided to leave the Swat Valley, as the Taliban continue to "dig themselves in quite deeply" by taking over houses and mines.
