Suspected Taliban terrorists in Pakistan's northwest have slaughtered four men they accused of spying for the United States.

The mutilated bodies were dumped in an open area in Mir Ali, a major town in the North Waziristan tribal region.



Dozens of men have been killed in a similar fashion in North Waziristan in recent years, especially as the US has pushed for Pakistan's army to take on insurgents based there who plan attacks in neighboring Afghanistan.

Area residents and an Associated Press reporter saw the bodies Friday morning. One was beheaded, while the other three had slit throats and severed hands.

Notes attached to the bodies warned others to learn from the fate of the so-called spies.
