Taliban militants have blown up the house of a former Pakistani minister in the Swat valley, Geo TV reported on Wednesday.

The gunmen seized the house of Ameer Muqam in the Bahrain area, and later blew up the house with explosives, the report said.

Ameer Muqam and his family members were not present in the house at the time of the incident, the report cited unnamed sources as saying. The gunmen had asked two of the minister's aides to leave the house.

The former minister later said that the restoration of peace in the Swat valley has been difficult as Taliban militants have continued their illegal activities.
