ISLAMABAD (PANinfo-icon): Five people were killed and seven others wounded in a US drone strike in Pakistaninfo-icon's lawless tribal region of South Waziristan near the Afghanistaninfo-icon 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.
