Pakistani elders beat drums to assemble a force of at least 1,000 armed tribesmen, ordering them to join a battle aimed at routing foreign fighters along the frontier with Afghanistan that has already claimed more than 150 lives. One tribesman said a council of tribal elders is assembling a force of some 1,800 men and that they would begin deploying Wednesday to several villages in the South Waziristan region where fighting against several hundred Uzbek and Chechen fighters and their local allies in the wild border zone has turned vicious. The Central Asians are suspected of links with al-Qaida and of supporting Taliban raids into Afghanistan.
