Pakistan on offense against Taliban

Per CNN, the Pakistani Army claimed Sunday that it had killed 200 Taliban militants in the last 24 hours. The situation in the Swat Valley of Pakistan has led to a flood of refugees, as civilians try to leave the area.

Twitterers from Pakistan to the United States are discussing the news:
