Militants in troubled northwestern Pakistan agreed to a cease-fire Monday, a day after security forces backed by helicopter gunships targeted their hide-outs, killing at least 10 suspected insurgents, officials said. Residents said they had not heard any gunshots early Monday in Swat, a mountainous valley in northwestern Pakistan where the government is battling supporters of a militant pro-Taliban cleric. "This is a good thing that the militants have agreed to the cease-fire, and we welcome it," Arshad Majid, the district coordination officer in Swat, said by telephone.
