Miramshah, Jan.15 (ANI): Taliban militants shot dead today a man accused by it of spying for the US security forces.

A note left by the militants near the body described him as a 'US spy.'he militants have killed dozens of local tribesmen, government officials and Afghan refugees, over allegations of spying for Pakistan troops or foreign forces operating in Afghanistan after the US-led allied forces toppled the Taliban regime in late 2001.
