Two Afgan men killed for 'spying'

December 13, 2008
Afghanistan: Taliban militants killed two Afghan men they accused of spying on behalf of US forces behind missile strikes in northwest Pakistan. Official Sakhi Ur Rehman says authorities found the men's bodies yesterday in Miran Shah, the main town in the North Waziristan tribal region, after being alerted by residents. A letter found nearby alleges the men gave information to the US that aided missile strikes in the militant-plagued region. Rehman says the letter claims a CD containing the pair's alleged confession is forthcoming. The US is suspected in more than 30 missile strikes against militant targets in northwest Pakistan since August. (agencies)
