US drones kill dozens in North Waziristan
The attack occurred in the Datakhel area of North Waziristan in the morning, a government official, Bakhtiar, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
The drone fired four missiles at a house where a tribal gathering was underway, he said, adding, the house was destroyed and 25 dead bodies had been recovered so far.
According to Bakhtiar, the number of victims may increase because a large number of people are trapped under the rubble.
Saleh Shah, who lives in the area, said the vehicle of a suspected Taliban leader may have been the target.
Shah said 40 dead bodies had been pulled from the house and 15 injured people were taken to hospital.
An intelligence source reported the death of more than 30 people.
