Four killed in U.S. drone attack in NW Pakistan

Islamabad, Jan. 10 (Xinhua-ANI): At least four people were killed and several others injured in a U.S. drone strike in Pakistan's northwest tribal region of North Waziristan on Thursday morning, reported local media Express.

U.S. drones fired four missiles at a suspected militant hideout in Eissu Khel village in the Mir Ali area of North Waziristan bordering Afghanistan.

The house was completely destroyed in the strike, said the report, adding the identities of the victims are not yet known.

This is the second strike in the village recently. On Tuesday, U.S. drones fired two missiles at a house, killing at least three suspected militants including an al-Qaida-linked operative.

Thursday's strike is the 6th of its kind in Pakistan in 2013. At least 42 suspected militants have been killed in such strikes so far this year. (Xinhua-ANI)
