Authorities in Pakistan say they have found 22 bodies of tribal elders who were kidnapped by the local Taleban on Monday.
The bodies were found in Jandola town in South Waziristan district.
The men were kidnapped by militants loyal to Pakistan's top Taleban leader Baitullah Mehsud.
The militants overran Jandola, located in the south-eastern tip of the region, after clashes with the Bhittani tribe who are friendly to the government.
