DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan - Pakistani Taliban militants have executed 21 paramilitary force men who were captured in attacks on their posts late last week, a government official said on Sunday.

The men, who were kidnapped on Friday in attacks on three checkpoints near the city of Peshawar, were tied up, blindfolded and lined up before being shot one-by-one, said Naveed Abbas, a senior administration official in the Khyber region.

One man was badly wounded but survived, Abbas said, adding that the bodies had been found.
