Six Reported Killed In Suspected U.S. Drone Strike In Pakistan

world | Nov 15, 2011 | By RFE/RL 

Security officials say a missile strike by a suspected U.S. drone aircraft has killed at least six suspected militants in Pakistan's North Waziristan tribal region, close to the Afghanistan border.

Reports say the pre-dawn strike targeted a building in Miranshah, the main town of North Waziristan, and two missiles were fired.

The U.S. frequently carries out unmanned drone strikes targeting suspected Taliban and Al-Qaeda-linked militants who are blamed for using Pakistan's tribal areas to plan and launch attacks on U.S.-led forces in Afghanistan.
