Pakistan's security forces continued hitting suspected positions of militants in Peuchar, Gatshor, Sejbarb, Namal and other areas of Swat valley in North West Frontier Province.

Reports said the security forces on Sunday killed about 15 militants in the violence-hit valley, which used to be a scenic spot famous for ancient Buddhist culture, but has become a stronghold for local Taliban since last year.

The militants has destroyed dozens of girl's schools in different parts of the valley during the week-long operation.

The Pakistan security forces launched the major offensive in Swat valley on Tuesday after local Taliban kidnapped 25 police and paramilitary soldiers from a police station.
