Militants seized a police post and paramilitary troops set up sandbagged bunkers to bolster security in a tense town in northwestern Pakistan where supporters of a pro-Taliban cleric have taken up arms against the government, police said Sunday. Militants have clashed with security forces in the Swat district since Friday, when the military raided the stronghold of the pro-Taliban cleric, Maualana Fazlullah. Fifteen people have been killed in the violence, including six security personnel and seven civilians who were beheaded by militants, officials said.
