Swat militia ‘kills insurgents

Members of a local tribal militia in Pakistan’s Swat valley have killed three suspected militants, police say.The confrontation took place in the Galoch area of Kabal, near the region’s main town Mingora, witnesses said. One volunteer was wounded in the clash.

Reports say fighting began when suspected militants attacked the tribal militia who then retaliated. The army command in Kabal has been encouraging local people to raise their own militias against insurgents.

So the infighting could get worse in the area.
