Islamabad, Jul 19 (UNI) Bodies of three men, who were executed by militants for being US 'spies', were found in a water channel in the Taliban commander Baitullah Mehsud-dominated Kawan Manza area of South Waziristan, bordering Afghanistan.

A note in Pashto found with the bodies yesterday, said ''they were American spies''.

The unidentified bodies were buried in a local graveyard and no group claimed responsibility for the killing.

Meanwhile, a man was killed after local Taliban opened fire on a vehicle in Shah Alam area near Wana, the administrative headquarters of South Waziristan.

Two people accompanying him were captured. Local people blamed supporters of a pro-government militant commander Maulvi Nazir for the attack.

Sources said Islamist group of Maulvi Nazir suspected that the three men belonged to their rival group which had supported Uzbek nationals during clashes last year when the former launched an armed campaign in areas of the Ahmadzai Wazir tribe.
