Pakistan Extends Cease-Fire

ISLAMABAD (AP) - A Taliban spokesman says militants in
Pakistan's Swat valley have extended their cease-fire indefinitely,
giving more time for peace talks.

Pakistani authorities have offered to introduce Islamic law in
Swat and the surrounding region if militants agree to lay down
their arms.

Security forces are also holding their fire.

Taliban spokesman Muslim Khan said Tuesday that the militants'
cease-fire has been extended indefinitely. It was due to expire on
Wednesday.
