Pakistan releases 8 Afghan Taliban prisoners
The men were shot several times in the head and chest, three Pakistani intelligence officials said. Their bodies were found Monday off a road in Pir Kili village. The officials said the dead men were linked to the Pakistani Taliban, a militant group affiliated with the Taliban in Afghanistan but focused on fighting the Pakistani government.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to reporters.
North Waziristan is a hub of militant activity near the Afghan border.
The militants’ bodies were found one day after 21 tribal police personnel who had been abducted were found dead in another tribal region.
