Pakistan agrees Sharia law deal

Pakistan has signed a peace deal with a Taleban group that will lead to the enforcement of the Islamic Sharia law in the restive Swat valley. Regional officials urged the Taleban, who agreed a 10-day truce on Sunday, to lay down their arms permanently. Once one of Pakistan's most popular holiday destinations, the Swat valley is now mostly under Taleban control.
