5 killed in South Waziristan drone strike
Two missiles were fired at the vehicle that was completely destroyed and five of its occupants killed, the official said.
Haji Abdul Wahab Dawar, an elder from Barmal, said two houses were damaged by the missile assault that happened around noon. He feared the death toll could go up.
Another resident, Riaz Gul, alleged the dead were civilians, with no links to the Taliban. The drones continued to fly over the area for quite some time after the strike, he said.
