1. Now there is a media blackout...
and Musharraf may have declared a state of emergency.

I just read about this yesterday, thought your link was the same story actually, but the report earlier this week told of only 48 paramilitary troops being paraded thru the town of Charabagh, shown off to a group of journalists by their captors and later freed. Sounded like some stunt to me, especially since Rice has been admonishing that little dictator about "continuing the move to democracy", with him chomping at the bit to get out the guns. Your story explains more about how the soldiers were released. In two separate towns of the Swat Valley.

Musharraf has been itching to call martial law, looks like it just happened.
