Swat valley raid targets politician

Pro-Taliban group attacks the home of a senator killing members of his family.

    Khan, who was not in Swat valley at the time, confirmed the casualties.

    Pakistani troops killed up to 35 rebels in valley over the weekend after a suicide bombing and other attacks left seven people dead, including three policemen.

    Last year, Maulana Fazlullah, pro-Taliban leader, launched a campaign to ensure the implementation of Islamic law in the region.

    Since then, there has been heavy fighting in the region.
