Swat valley battle far from over

Following a major army offensive, the Pakistan government is in control in Swat but the area is still a military zone.

    Pakistan's military says its war with the Taliban in the Swat Valley is not yet over.

    It has been more than a year since the army launched a major offensive there, and relative peace does seem to have been restored. But some believe that the Taliban fighters will resurface if the army pulls out.
