Militants kill two "U.S. spies" in Pakistani tribal areas

Suspected militants have killed two Afghan men in Pakistan tribal region over suspicion that they were spying for the United States, the local News Network International news agency reported on Tuesday.

Their dead bodies were found along a main road in village Mubarak Shahi, some 15 km east of Miranshah, the headquarters of North Waziristan tribal region, said the report quoting witnesses.

A note, written in the local Urdu language, had been left with the bodies that said that they were spying for the United States and warned that anyone will face the same fate who spies for America.

Bullets reportedly hit both in head and legs and their hands tied at the back.

The authorities had placed bodies at the premises of town committee for identification.

No group claimed responsibility of the incident.

Another Afghan national was shot dead near the Pakistani-Afghan border in North Waziristan on the same charges a few days ago.

The incidents of target killings and murder on the charges of espionage for the United States have increased in North Waziristan in recent weeks.
