Taliban Executes Accused U.S. Spies

Taliban militants in Pakistan executed two accused men accused of spying for the U.S.  The men were strapped with explosives and killed before dozens of onlookers Thursday in Northern Waziristan, where the U.S. has increased drone attacks lately. The style of killing is a change from normal course: decapitation or shooting those thought to be spies. Waziristan, in northwest Pakistan, has emerged as a refuge for Taliban fighter and a training ground for Islamist militants.
