3 killed in Pakistan following US missile strikes

PESHAWAR, Pakistan — The bullet-riddled bodies of three men were found Sunday by a road in Pakistan's restive northwestern tribal region, killed by suspected Pakistani Taliban militants in apparent retaliation for recent US drone strikes in the area, officials and a villager said.
The corpses were discovered in North Waziristan alongside the Miran Shah-Data Khel road that leads to Afghanistan. A note under a rock next to the bodies said "Anyone who dares spy for the Americans will meet the same fate," according to two intelligence officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
Local government official Asghar Khan confirmed the report, but refused to give further details or release the identities or nationalities of the victims.
