Swat Violence termed ‘Near Civil War’; Obama Slammed in Pakistan

The Pakistani Army, in fierce fighting with tribal forces organized by the Tehrik-i Taliban, claims to have killed some 90 of the enemy in the past week, as the Swat Valley was engulfed in something close to a civil war.

Meanwhile, the Tehrik-i Taliban seems to be behind the burning of girls’ schools in Swat.

Aljazeera International reports:

Many Pakistanis blame the fighting in Swat on US pressure, and to the extent that Barack Obama has taken up that pressuring, he is getting heat in Pakistani editorials.
