The Pakistani Taliban Wednesday said they would not extend a cease-fire called to assist peace negotiations with the government, but insisted they were still committed to the talks process.The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) announced a one-month cease-fire at the start of March as the government sought a negotiated end to their bloody seven-year insurgency.The TTP extended the cease-fire to April 10, but complained there had been "complete silence" from the government since then and hinted that the military was trying to thwart talks.The government freed 19 tribesmen based in South Waziristan district last week and Khan said Sunday that 13 more of what he called "non-combatant Taliban" prisoners would be released to help the peace process.
