Bhutan Does What Pak Didn't

Bhutanese troops on Thursday captured all 30 camps of three anti-Indian militant groups as soldiers continued an offensive to flush militants out of the Himalayan kingdom, a top official said. 90 militants and 34 Bhutanese soldiers have been killed. “All 30 militant camps belonging to the three separatist groups in southern Bhutan have been overrun by our soldiers and we are now in the process of driving the militants out of the country,” said Singay Dorji, a Bhutanese foreign ministry spokesman. “We don’t know where the militants are right now. They could be deep inside the jungles, but our troops are in hot pursuit of them,” Dorji told IANS by telephone from Bhutan’s capital Thimphu. In Kolkata, a top Indian general said the militants were weakening after losing some 120 cadres in the past three days.
