WANA, July 18: Bodies of three men, who were executed by militants for being US ‘spies’, were found on Friday in a water channel in the Mehsud-dominated Kawan Manza area of South Waziristan.
A note in Pashto found with the bodies said they “were American spies”.
The unidentified bodies were buried in a local graveyard and no group claimed responsibility for the killing.
Meanwhile, a man was killed after local Taliban opened fire on a vehicle in Shah Alam area near Wana. Two people accompanying him were captured. Local people blamed supporters of a pro-government militant commander Maulvi Nazir for the attack.
Sources said that the group of Maulvi Nazir suspected that the three men belonged to their rival group which had supported Uzbek nationals during clashes last year when the former launched an armed campaign in areas of the Ahmadzai Wazir tribe.—Correspondent
