Pakistan regains control of Swat towns


The Pakistani army is in control of the biggest city in Swat valley, Mingora, according to a Pakistani military spokesman, Major General Athar Abbas.

The comments follow the Pakistani defence secretary's announcement that operations against Taliban rebels in the Swat valley region should be over in the next few days.

Major General Abbas was not as certain about predicting of the end of the conflict, saying "Swat will take a little more time... it is very difficult to give a timeline".
