    Following rallies in Peshawar and Lahore, ethnic Pashtuns gathered in Swat demanding greater rights in Pakistan.

    They're calling for the military to remove landmines and checkpoints - as well as the return of many who've disappeared.

    Army commanders are angry at the anti-military protests but are offering to hold talks.
