Miramshah (NWFP, Pakistan), Feb.15 (ANI): An Afghan was shot dead on Sunday by Taliban militants here on charges that he had spied for the United States.
According to officials, the militants dumped the body of Imdad Khan, 35, by the roadside in the village of Karamkot, 20 kilometres east of Miramshah, the main town in North Waziristan.
The Dawn quoted a security official as saying that the victim was an Afghan refugee.
