US Drone Kills Militants in Pakistan
According to two Pakistani intelligence officials, the US drone fired missiles which struck a militant compound in the Datta Khel area of North Waziristan early on Sunday.
“A US drone fired two missiles which hit a compound and a vehicle in Alwara Mandi of North Waziristan… killing six terrorists,” a senior security official told AFP news agency.
The compound, some 300 meters from the Afghan border, was used by fighters loyal to the Pakistani Taliban commander Hafiz Gul Bahadur as well as Uzbek militants. It was not immediately clear whether Bahadur himself was in the compound at the time of the strike.
