Islamabad: Militants have beheaded a tribesman in public after accusing him of spying for security forces in Pakistan's Khyber Agency, a media report said Saturday.

According to sources, the beheading was carried out Friday in a market in Mehraban Kalay area of Tirah valley and militants ordered local people not to remove the body till later in the night, Dawn online reported.

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

The two groups joined hands after LI chief Mangal Bagh invited all outlawed militant groups to come to Bara and fight against security forces after the 'Khyber-1' military operation was launched against the group Oct 16.
