The Taliban surrounded a military convoy as it attempted to enter Mingora, the administrative seat of Swat. The Taliban surrounded the convoy “from all sides,” Dawn reported, and forced the military forces to retreat. The military “warned that if such a situation developed again, the armed forces would not hesitate to use force.”


“We’re surrounded. That simplifies the problem.”

“All right, they’re on our left, they’re on our right, they’re in front of
us, they’re behind us…they can’t get away this time”
