Drone kills 3 militants in Waziristan
ISLAMABAD(PAN): At least three suspected militants were killed when US drones slammed missiles into Pakistan's lawless tribal region of South Waziristan, near the Afghanistan border, on Tuesday afternoon, an official said.
Two US spy planes were involved in the assault that took place in the Baghar area, an intelligence official told Pajhwok Afghan News on condition of anonymity.
Two missiles were fired at a house in the area, killing three people, he said, adding the toll could be high as militants who had cordoned off the site were searching for bodies under the debris.
It was the second such attack after the killing of Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan in the past week.
