Taliban militants have publicly beheaded a man for allegedly spying for the security forces in Pakistan’s northwestern tribal region.

The execution was carried out Friday in Mehraban Kalay area of Tirah valley in Khyber district.

The militants killed the tribesman in a market and ordered local people not to remove the body till evening, the Dawn reported today.

Mehraban Kalay and adjacent areas are under control of the outlawed Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan, but Lashkar-i-Islam also has some influence.

The two groups joined hands after Lashkar’s chief Mangal Bagh invited all outlawed militant groups to come to Bara and fight against security forces.

The security forces have launched the Khyber-1 military operation against militants in the area on October 16. The operation has forced thousands of people to flee their homes.

In Bara, security forces and local political administration extended the deadline to today for Sipah and Malikdin Khel tribes to vacate their homes.

The deadline was extended after tribal elders sought more time to shift families to safe places.

The Fata Disaster Management Authority has said that 53,819 families comprising 364,960 people have so far moved out of Bara and Tirah valley.

There are 213,195 children and 77,319 women among them.

Each family had been provided with one meal, free transportation and emergency health care.

Children under the age of five have been vaccinated against polio. Also on Friday, 39 militants belonging to LI surrendered to security forces in Khyber.

        Lies leave its trace back. First of all u will never find a single person wearing the dress people wearing in this pic in tribal areas of stan and secondly why the guy who is executing the person is hiding his face? And finally ,notice the threads wrapped around the right wrist of man executing, U will never see this thing on any Jihadi's wrist. Its more a Hindu tradition.

          It is a surprise that with such barbarity the people still cling to the same religion.
