Police said that militants seized the town of Madyan and hoisted flags over buildings.

“They seized Madyan town, they have overrun Matta and Khwazakhela towns in their earlier push,” the Dawn quoted police official, as saying.

According to sources, police gave up their weapons, vehicles and control of local police stations. The militants are continuing their advance, the sources added.

A Swat police official said that helicopter gunships are on their way to target militant positions in the area.

Meanwhile, Taliban leader Maulvi Fazalullah is moving around half of the Swat area like a ruler with full protocol. He has appointed his own ‘governors’ in Tehsil Kabal, Matta and Khawazkhela. (ANI)
