Taliban militants shot dead three men in Pakistan’s restive northwest tribal belt after filming them confessing to spying for the United States, officials said on Monday. The bullet-ridden body of local tribesman Tahir Khan was found dumped on Monday in a bazaar in Wana, the main town in the semi-autonomous South Waziristan tribal region, a notorious hub of Taliban and al-Qaida militants. “Khan, who was kidnapped 10 days ago, had multiple bullet wounds on his body,” a security official said. A DVD found with the body showed Khan confessing to spying and passing on information that led to a series of US missile attacks in the region. A note found on the body said, “All those spying for the US will suffer the same fate,” according to the official. Two more bodies of alleged US spies were found an hour later with similar notes and DVDs. One was a brother of Khan and the third man was identified as Shabbir Khan, residents and officials said.
