WASHINGTON (Agencies) The Pakistani Army has denied fresh accusations levelled by a US rights body regarding extra-judicial killings and torture in Swat. New York-based Rights Watch said it had briefed US State Department and congressional officials about mounting evidence of more than 200 summary executions in Swat Valley in the past eight months of suspected Taliban sympathizers. The Pakistani Army denied the groups accusations of abuse in Swat, home to about 1.3 million people and the site of a much-lauded military operation last year to take back the former Taliban stronghold. Swat is open to journalists and you can conduct investigative reporting there, Pakistani Army spokesman Major General Athar Abbas told Reuters in Islamabad. Have you seen any sort of report in Pakistani newspapers?
