Pakistan: Police say Taliban kill alleged US spies

Suspected Taliban militants killed two Afghans they accused of spying for US forces, while clashes Saturday involving security forces, tribesmen and insurgents killed eight people, including two children, elsewhere in Pakistan's volatile northwest, officials said. Authorities acting on residents' reports found the Afghan men's bodies in Miran Shah, the main town in North Waziristan tribal region, police official Sakhi-ur-Rehman said. One had his throat slit; the other had multiple bullet wounds. A letter found nearby alleged the men gave information that aided the US in launching missile strikes in the militant-plagued region. The letter claimed a CD containing their alleged confession is forthcoming, Rehman said.
