ISLAMABAD: More than 230 Taliban militants were killed in fierce fighting with the Pakistan Army in the northwest tribal belt, the military said on Sunday, as President Asif Ali Zardari said his government was determined to eliminate all terrorists holed up in the Swat Valley.

Amid intensification in the military offensive, thousands of terrified civilians fled the scenic valley after relaxation of curfew, even as the authorities voiced fears that over a million people could be displaced due to fighting. – PTI
