PESHAWAR (AFP) - Suspected Taliban militants shot dead two women and dumped their burqa-clad bodies by a roadside in Kohat, officials said Friday. It was not immediately clear who killed the women, but a local security official said Taliban militants were likely responsible. Police official Riaz Khan said the slain women had a "bad reputation" and about a year ago were warned by people to abandon their "immoral ways." The bullet-riddled bodies of the women, about 25 and 40 years old, were dumped on a roadside. Nobody claimed responsibility but Taliban militants have been carrying out extra-judicial killings intended to protect honour and the name of Islam in Pakistan's northwest. Residents heard gunshots overnight but the law-and-order situation in Kohat is such that streets are deserted after sunset in the garrison town, which his the main base of the army.
