In Pakistan’s Swat, Taliban Instill Fear After Defeat — Reuters

(Reuters) – Kishwar Begum studied nursing until she apparently decided to take lives, not help save them.

Her photograph appears on the front-page of a newspaper identifying her as a would-be suicide bomber, still at large in the Swat Valley, a former Taliban bastion seized by Pakistan’s army in a major offensive nearly a year ago.

Many Taliban were killed. Others melted away, leaving residents fearful the militants will return if the army leaves and hands over security to a struggling police force.
