Militants in Pakistan have carried out what officials have called a “public execution” of two Afghans before thousands of cheering supporters.
The pair was alleged to have helped an American missile strike that killed 14 people in a border village last month. Correspondents say that the brazen nature of the killings – one man was decapitated and another shot – show the Taliban’s growing power. The deaths took place in the Bajaur tribal agency near the Afghan border.

The news comes as Russia conducts a transition of power with Vladimir Putin becoming prime minister and Dmitry Medvedev president.

Ilya Zaslavsky is a manager at the TNK-BP oil joint venture, his brother Alexander head of the British Council’s Moscow Alumni club. The two, who have joint US and Russian citizenship, were gathering classified data for foreign firms, the FSB said.
