Peshawar: Three tribesmen were beheaded by the Taliban in Pakistan's restive northwest for allegedly spying for the US.

Their bodies were found today at a location 24 kms east of Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan tribal agency, local residents said.

A note left beside the bodies said the men were beheaded for spying on the Taliban for the US.

It warned that other "spies" would meet the same fate.

The Taliban have beheaded dozens of tribesmen and Afghan nationals on charges of spying in Pakistan's tribal belt over the past two years.
