Swat, Oct. 30, 2007 : Pakistani troops killed up to 60 Islamist militants during fierce fighting in the Swat valley in the country's northwest, the army said on Monday, and the insurgents called a truce to recover their dead and wounded.

Troops firing artillery and backed by helicopter gunships on Sunday battled militants led by a pro-Taliban cleric seeking to impose strict Islamic law in the scenic valley close to Pakistan's lawless tribal belt bordering Afghanistan.
