Taliban behead 4 men for spying for US

April 23, 2010 19:12 IST

The bodies of four men beheaded by the Taliban on charges of allegedly spying for the US were found in the restive North Waziristan tribal region of northwest Pakistan on Friday, officials said.

The bodies were found at the spot located 25 km from Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan Agency.

The identity of the dead men could not immediately be ascertained.

The Taliban have killed dozens of tribesmen over the past few years on charges of spying for US forces in Afghanistan.
