Taliban Militants Kill Six For Alleged U.S. Spying

Pakistani officials have found the bodies of six men killed by Taliban militants for allegedly spying for the United States.

The bullet-ridden bodies of five men were found dumped by the side of a road in the village of Kamsarobi, in the country's North Waziristan tribal region.

The body of the sixth man was found in nearby Qutabkhel.

Local police officials say notes written by Taliban militants were found on the bodies of all six men, accusing them of spying for the United States and thereby helping to launch anti-Taliban drone attacks.

A volley of drone aircraft strikes has hit northwest Pakistan this month, all in North Waziristan, which borders Afghanistan.

The area is considered a bastion of Taliban and Al-Qaeda militants.
