Taliban execute two tribesmen in northwest Pakistan
Peshawar: The Taliban in northwest
Pakistan has carried out a public execution, killing two
tribesmen accused of spying for the US by detonating
explosives strapped to their bodies.
The tribesmen, whose identity could not be
ascertained, were executed yesterday before a large
gathering at Degan village in Datta Khel sub-division, a
Taliban stronghold in the volatile North Waziristan Agency.
The militants had accused the two men of having links
with the US, a source close to the Taliban said.
They were arrested and "tried" by a Taliban court,
which sentenced them to death.
The Taliban have in recent months executed several men
who were accused of being US spies after a series of drone
strikes in the tribal region.
