    PESHAWAR: Troops battling the Taliban in Swat are sure that the command and control structure of the militants has been dismantled and their junior and mid-level commanders have either been killed or were on the run, a Pakistan Army general said here on Saturday.

    Lieutenant General Nadeem Ahmed, who is the chairman of the Special Support Group, however, conceded that the top Taliban leadership was still at large. 
    He believed the Swat Taliban leadership’s contacts with low-ranking commanders had been disrupted and the recruitment and training centres were no more operational. He claimed the militants’ logistic dumps and ammunition had been destroyed and the flow of finances to the militants halted.

    Briefing journalists about the relief activities in the IDP camps, reconstruction and rehabilitation in the affected areas and success against the militants, Lt Gen Nadeem said troops would stay in Swat till the revival of the civil administration.

    To ensure that the militants do not stage a comeback, he said young men from villages would be recruited in police and the process would be completed in a year following the conclusion of the military operation.

    Islamist urges al Qaeda to 

    open up to Obama's offer

    Essam Derbala, a member of the leadership council of Al-Gama'a Al-Islamiya, or Islamic Group, made the appeal after President Barack Obama said in Cairo on Thursday he wanted a "new beginning" in ties between Washington and the Muslim world.

    Islamist thinkers and groups in Egypt have long inspired Islamic movements around the world.

    "I call on the Taliban of Afghanistan and Pakistan and al Qaeda to look at this solution and put the American side to a real test of the extent of its sincerity in achieving peace with the Muslim world," Derbala told Reuters.

    "I consider this a chance to reveal the truth about Barack Obama before the people," he said, adding these organisations should open up to talks with the United States and declare they have "no need to kill American civilians".
