Taliban kill two ‘US spies’ in North Waziristan
MIRANSHAH: Taliban militants killed two men in Pakistan’s restive tribal district after accusing them of spying for the United States, police officials said on Sunday.
The bodies were found on roadsides, one hacked into pieces, in the Nawi Adda and Boya areas of the Dattakhel region in North Waziristan, a remote tribal district bordering Afghanistan.
They were local tribesmen who had been captured after two separate US drone attacks in the region on Thursday and Friday, the officials said.
“A charred body of local tribesman was found dumped on the road side in Nawi Adda area on Sunday morning with a note in Pashto language,” said local tribal police official Jalaluddin.
The second body, which had been cut into pieces, was found in Boya area, another local police official, Habibullah Khan said.
Local intelligence officials also confirmed the incidents, adding that the bodies were found with notes warning “all those spying for US will suffer the same fate.”
