Suspected Islamic militants in a chaotic Pakistani tribal town have decapitated a man accused of spying for US forces on Wednesday.

The militants dumped the body of the unidentified victim in his 20's in an isolated area near the northwestern town of Khar in the Bajaur tribal district, said the local official who was informed by the villagers.

The official also added that they found a note, left by the militants, near the body in which those who spy for the US forces were warned of the same fate.

It was the second killing of the kind in the area this week, after militants slit the throat of a 40-year-old Afghan refugee from the neighboring Afghan province of Kunar on Tuesday.
