Peshawar, Oct 4(ANI): Three men have been allegedly killed by the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in North Waziristan, apparently in retaliation for the recent US drone strikes in the area.
According to the Daily Times, the bullet-riddled bodies of the three men were found near Miran Shah-Dattakhel road on Sunday.
A note under a rock next to the bodies said, "Anyone who dares spy for the Americans will meet the same fate."
The slayings came a day after two US drone attacks had killed 16 people in the region.
According to official reports, some 1,753 people have been killed in 167 drone strikes since the first unmanned missile killed five people in 2004.
Waziristan is believed to be home to Taliban leaders Hakimullah Mehsood, Hafiz Gul Bahadur and Mulla Nazir who are fighting against the US and NATO forces in Afghanistan. (ANI)
