The Pakistani army says at least 180 suspected insurgents have been killed in the past 24 hours in the northwest's Swat Valley and surrounding areas. The casualty figures given in the Sunday afternoon statement could not be independently verified. It also was unclear whether any of the deaths had been reported in army statements from Saturday. The statement said some 50 to 60 insurgents were killed Sunday in Swat. But it said the majority of killings occurred in neighboring Shangla district, with about 140 bodies found. It was unclear why the numbers given in the statement did not add up.
