Miranshah: Afghan woman killed for ‘spying’
MIRANSHAH: Local Taliban killed an Afghan woman in the Degan area of North Waziristan on Wednesday after accusing her of spying for the US forces in Afghanistan. This is the second incident of the Taliban killing a woman on the charge of spying. The other woman was killed in Bajaur on June 11.
Sources said the body of Gulzada Bibi, who was in her mid-thirties, was found in a dry nullah near the Afghan border with three bullet wounds in her chest.
They said the Taliban had captured the woman in the adjacent Khost province of Afghanistan a few days ago and brought her to North Waziristan for interrogations.
A note found near the body said “She was an American agent and carried communication tools, including a satellite phone.” It said “The body will remain here and nobody should touch it.”
