Taliban execute Pakistani policemen in video
Islamabad: Pakistan`s Army says the Taliban have released a video showing fighters executing 16 Pakistani policemen captured in a raid in the northwest.
The video shows the policemen lined up on a hillside, their hands tied behind their backs, standing in front of armed Taliban fighters wearing scarves to hide their faces.
One of the fighters accused the men of executing six children. The fighters opened fire on the policemen and then systematically fired a shot in the head.
Pakistan Army spokesman Major General Athar Abbas said on Monday the policemen were captured when the Taliban staged an attack from Afghanistan in Pakistan`s Upper Dir district in June.
The video was published on the LiveLeak website.
