Kidnapped Human Rights Activist Found Dead In Pakistan
April 30, 2010
Pakistan (ChattahBox) – More tragedy in Pakistan as the body of a human rights activist who fought for the release of dozens of people taken into illegal custody by officials over the years was found dead, weeks after being reported as missing.
Khalid Khawaja was one of three men to be taken by a group calling themselves the Asian Tigers.
Officials in Pakistan believe that the Asian Tigers are a front group for the Taliban, who control much of the Waziristan tribal region, where Khawaja’s body was found.
According to reports, a video was found after he was kidnapped that showed him admitting to being an informant and spy for the U.S. and the CIA.
He was shot in the head and chest.
