KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Sixteen militants were killed in a CIA-operated dron attack in South Waziristan , part of Pakistaninfo-icon’s restive tribal belt on the border with Afghanistaninfo-icon, on Wednesday, an official said.

Hideouts of militants loyal to Abu Nasir and Maulviinfo-icon Khaleswere were targeted in the Sara Rogha area at around 9:30am, killing 16 insurgents, a government official told Pajhwok Afghan News on condition of anonymity.

The strike was carried out on two houses in a mountainous area, said resident Naseer Azam. Four missiles were fired by the drone, destroying the houses, he added.

Azam feared the causalities could rise as some of the injured were in critical condition and others trapped under the rubble. It was the second drone raid over the past 24 hours. Five rebels were killed a day earlier.
