Swat: A Chronology since 2006
· 01 Mar, 2009 · 68 · Special Report
This report provides an overview of the events as they took place in the Swat Valley in Pakistan between January 2006 till early March 2009, when President Zardari concluded a peace deal with Sufi Muhammed, the chief of the banned TNSM and Maulana Fazlullah, his estranged son-in-law and the head of the Taliban in Swat.
While it remains to be seen if this deal survives, most experts have already consigned it to its grave citing examples of previous such deals that had been struck, but collapsed. This report does not provide an analysis of the events of the last three years, but a ready reference about what happened and when it happened.
