Police: Pakistani Militants Behind Mumbai Attack

Terrorists stormed the home of a pro-government militia leader and killed him on Wednesday as troops killed nine militants in the ongoing operation, officials said.

More than 50 Taliban raided the residence of Khalilur Rehman and shot him dead in Shangla, which borders the region where the army three months ago launched an operation to crush militants, police and a local lawmaker said.

Rehman, 60, formed a private tribal militia known as lashkar and used to provide logistic support to groups fighting the Taliban, residents said.

"He was shot dead soon after he entered the meeting hall of his house," senior police officer Gul Wali said. Rehman's servant was wounded, he added.

Security forces retaliated and killed two militants, Wali said.

The military said troops killed four militants in Swat over the last 24 hours, 23 of them were arrested and hideouts and militant houses demolished. While an important terrorist commander Umar Said alias Zarqawi of Asi kot Qandharo voluntarily surrendered before civil administration.
