Pakistan army captures Taliban leader in Swat (Declan Walsh, 9/11/09, guardian.co.uk)

The Pakistan army has captured the Swat Taliban spokesman, Muslim Khan – the first arrest of an insurgent leader since the start of a major military operation in the picturesque northern valley four months ago.

An army spokesman, Major General Athar Abbas, said that Khan and another commander, Mahmood Khan, had been seized. Both had £73,000 bounties on their heads. Three lesser commanders were also captured.
