Taliban release horrific video showing execution of Pakistani policemen
By Daily Mail Reporter 18th July 2011 (hat tip Paul B)
Forced into a line facing their captors, some with arms bound behind their backs, they listen silent and helpless to the Taliban commander who holds their fate in his hands.
But for these prisoners there will be no mercy. Pakistani policemen, they were captured during fighting in the north-western district of Dir.
The insurgent leader, who has come over the border from Afghanistan, condemns them as 'enemies of Islam and apostates.'
Brutal: The Pakistan policemen are lined up by the Taliban captors as the insurgent commander (right) gives a speech listing their alleged 'crimes'
Condemned to death: Moments later the shooting begins and the captives topple backwards in a hail of bullets
'They are the Pakistani police, soldiers and their supporters who recently lined up six kids in Swat and shot them execution style,' he says, jabbing his hands at the prisoners and brandishing his gun.
'These Pakistanis are now our captive and we will avenge the death of the children by doing the same to them.'
Second later he and his three men raise their weapons and open fire. The policemen - around a dozen in total - topple backwards in a hail of bullets.
Bloodied, they lie in the dust as their executioners continue to shoot. When the gunfire finally stops, the dusty clearing is filled with the sound of agonised groans and screams.
The camera - operated by one of the insurgents - then focuses on each of the captives in turn, lingering on their bloodied tunics and faces, many mutilated beyond recognition.
All wear the traditional baggy trousers and tunics of the region. Some are older men with greying hair and beards while others are barely older than teenagers.
Aftermath: The gunfire raises a cloud of dust and the bodies can be dimly seen through the murk
Evidence: The Taliban finish each man off with a bullet to the head
Against all the odds, a number of prisoners are still alive. But the Taliban do not leave anything to chance. One of the insurgents walks the line putting a bullet through each head.
