MIRAMSHAH: Amid continuous flights of the CIA-operated spy planes over various parts of the North Waziristan Agency, two more tribesmen were killed by the Taliban militants here on Friday morning on charges of spying for the US forces across the border in Afghanistan.

Taliban militants dumped bullet-riddled bodies of two aged local tribesmen at Razmak Adda in Miramshah Bazaar, and left a letter in which the residents were warned not to remove them before noon.

Later, when the deadline ended, family members and relatives of the two tribesmen shifted the bodies to a Miramshah village.The slain men were identified as Aslam Pir and Khan, an employee of the Wapda.

The Taliban also stopped local tribesmen from offering funeral prayers for the two alleged US spies and warned them not to bury them in any graveyard within the tribal region. The militants stopped villagers of Miramshah from digging graves in the village graveyard for the two tribesmen. The villagers were forced by Taliban to stop digging graves and sent back to the village, complained relatives of the slain men.

They said the two men were later secretly buried. Khan was buried unceremoniously in Darpakhel village near Eidgah while Aslam Pir was laid to rest in the mountain of Sarbanki village near here.

Four US spy planes again intruded into the Pakistani airspace and were seen flying over various towns of the restive tribal region. Meanwhile, three mortar shells fired from Afghanistans Khost province landed in Dandi Kach area near Spinwam Tehsil. (Source-The News)
