Pakistan's army has said it has cleared most of the restive north-western Swat valley of pro-Taleban militants.
Troops were pursuing several hundred hardcore supporters of cleric Maulana Fazlullah in the region's mountains, the army's head of operations said.
... "The militants have retreated to two places in the mountains in the northwest of the valley and we will chase them there."
Only five troops and six civilians have been killed, and 20 civilians wounded, he said.
He said 290 militants had been killed and 143 arrested in recent weeks.
- THIS IS PROBABLY TRUE.
- AFTER ALL; IF THINGS WERE GOING BADLY THEN WE'D BE HEARING A LOT MORE ABOUT IT THAN WE HAVE BEEN HEARING.
