Taliban militants from Pakistan’s troubled Swat valley have stormed the nearby district of Buner, killing at least five people, police say.


A local tribal force has been battling the militants since Monday, but their resistance is weakening, residents say.

The Taliban overran Swat district nearly two years ago, and have held it despite an 18-month-long military operation to uproot them.

The Buner incursion is likely to strain a peace deal with the NWFP government. >>>
