KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Five suspected militants were killed and two others wounded in a US drone strike in the Shawal area in North Waziristan late Saturday afternoon, Pakistani media reports.

These sources, added that the drone fired two missiles into a compound in the valley close to the Pakistaninfo-icon-Afghanistaninfo-icon border, killing six militants. Most of those killed were foreigners, it added.

It said that number of casualties may rise. Dattakhel and Shawal are by far the two major areas where the military is concentrating on air power to soften up the area infested by local and foreign militants, who fled Operation Zarb-i-Azb in North Waziristan.
