“We have raised this issue with … the Pakistani government,” State Department spokesman Philip Crowley said in a briefing Thursday.
“We … have encouraged them to investigate it fully,” he said.
“We take all allegations of human rights violations… very seriously. Human rights and the issue of extrajudicial killings has been a part of our ongoing conversation… with Pakistan,” Crowley said.
“It’s been recorded in our previous human rights reports, and we are awaiting further information from Pakistan,” he said.
One video clip on the Site Intelligence Group website showed men carrying rifles and wearing military uniforms and helmets line up six blindfolded men in long robes, hands apparently bound behind their backs.
The men in uniform stepped back from the young men and opened fire on them. After they dropped to the ground, one of the uniformed men fired shots into their crumpled bodies.
The second video just showed the apparent execution.
Site said the “two clips showing what a jihadist described as Pakistani soldiers firing upon innocent Muslims in Swat, a district in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan, has sparked outrage amongst jihadists.
“The two clips, which seem to have been recorded with two mobile phones, were distributed on jihadist forums on September 23, 2010,” it added.
The jihadist who posted the clips wrote in a message posting: Is Muslim blood cheap or amusing. To all the agents of America, may Allah curse you for your monstrous actions in what you call the war on terror in Swat.
“Allah, such actions are truly terrorism, and those shedding the blood of Muslims are biggest traitors to the Islamic Ummah,’” Site said.
