ISLAMABAD (PAN): Five people were killed and seven others wounded in a US drone strike in Pakistan's lawless tribal region of South Waziristan near the Afghanistan border, an official said on Wednesday.
The pilotless aircraft targeted a house in the Babar Ghar area of Sararogha sub-district on Tuesday night, killing five suspected militants, injuring seven others and destroying the compound, a security official in Wana town said on condition of anonymity.
The drone was seen hovering over the village for some time after the strike, local officials said.
