    The Pakistan army has captured the hometown of the country's Taliban chief after fierce fighting, military officials said today.

    Government troops entered Kotkai town, in the Taliban and al-Qaida stronghold of South Waziristan on the Afghan border, yesterday and were now mopping up resistance, according to a senior government official.

    Kotkai is the hometown of Pakistani Taliban chief Hakimullah Mehsud and one of his senior deputies, Qari Hussain. It also lies on the route to the major militant base of Sararogha.

    Security forces first took the town on Monday, but the Taliban retook control a day later.

    "A fierce battle was fought there and now our forces have taken control of the town and a mopping-up operation is going on," the official told Reuters.

    Pakistani troops capture a town in Pakistan, and the mods put the thread under "Afghanistan."

    Apparently the only thing allowed in Current Events are flames against Obama.

    Dumbass. Threads were merged obviously.

    And since Echo's post came first, yours got merged into hers. And hers was started in the Afghan forum.

    Not everyone or everything is a conspiracy.
