Brigadier Salman Akbar, in-charge of military operation, Swat, while addressing a ceremony at FC Lines at Kabal said that 105 militants had surrendered to the law enforcement agencies. Colonel Mubeen, in-charge of ISPR in Swat, was also present on the occasion. Brigadier Salman Akbar said now the militants are on the run and they are contacting the forces for surrender. He said they are warning terrorists to lay down arms and hand over themselves to the security forces otherwise they would be punished severely. Condemning Mingora suicide blast, he said that terrorists could not deter the courage of the security forces with such moves. He further said that the people of Kabal and Qalagay had formed Lashkars against the militants and more such Lashkars would be formed in other areas of Swat. He said that 165 terrorists, including 18 proclaimed offenders, had surrendered to the security forces so far. Meanwhile, 15 militants were killed and two security forces personnel injured in clashes with security forces in Jambil and Kokari area, officials said. AFP adds: At least 41 bodies, mostly those of Taliban militants, apparently slain by the residents in revenge killing, have been found in Swat valley over the past 24 hours, officials said Tuesday. The bodies, six of them beheaded, had been dumped by the roadside, riverside and in fields in different areas of the valley, officials said. Military claims to have cleared Swat of extremists in an offensive launched in April, after militants extended their grip on the valley and terrorised residents with violence that included public beheadings. Officials said the latest discoveries brought to 251 the number of people found dead in similar circumstances since July, and believed that these were militants who had been killed by residents fearing a Taliban comeback. Among the 41 dead bodies, six were beheaded, almost all of them were militants, Atif-ur-Rehman, the top administrative official of Swat district, told AFP, adding that the rest had bullet wounds. According to my information they were militants and were killed by residents, Rehman said. Fourteen police cadets were killed Sunday in a suicide attack in the main town in Swat valley, which police blamed on Taliban militants. People are now familiar with dead bodies, it is becoming a routine, Swat resident Sakhawat Ali, 34, told AFP. We see dead bodies almost every morning, most of them are Taliban. The militarys April offensive forced 1.9 million civilians from their homes, most of them seeking refuge with relatives and the rest crowding into refugee camps, creating a humanitarian crisis for impoverished country. Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani announced in July that the military had eliminated extremists in the northwest and according to government and UN statistics 1.6 million displaced people returned home. Swat slipped out of government control after radical cleric Maulana Fazlullah mounted a violent campaign in which his followers beheaded opponents, burnt schools and fought against troops to enforce Sharia law. Authorities say more than 2,000 militants and over 170 security personnel were killed in the government offensive, but the death tolls have been impossible to verify independently.
