ISLAMABAD (PANinfo-icon): Four people were killed Monday night in a US drone strike in Pakistaninfo-icon's tribal region of North Waziristan, near the Afghanistaninfo-icon border, an official said on Tuesday.

An unmanned plane fired two missiles into a house in the Muski village of Mir Ali sub-district of North Waziristan, killing four unidentified people, a local administration official told Pajhwok Afghan News on condition of anonymity.

The identities of the victims and whether they were foreign insurgents or local residents could not be established, the official said, adding that the bodies were beyond recognition.

Several spy planes could be seen hovering over the area for several hours prior to the attack, a local resident said.
