world Updated: Jan 26, 2009 07:26 IST

Taliban in northwest Pakistan's Swat Valley on Sunday released a hit-list comprising 45 political leaders, ministers, members of parliament, elected councillors and prominent personalities, the News Network International (NNI) news agency reported.

The politicians belonging to various political parties will be targeted if they do not appear in Taliban's Shariat courts, the report said.

The NNI quoted a Taliban leader in Swat, Maulana Fazalullah, as saying that the people in the list had destroyed peace in Swat and should be tried in Taliban's Shariat court.

Fazalullah said that if these people did not appear in the court, they would face dangerous consequences.
