In the second drone strike since the killing of Osama bin Laden, a US drone targeted a vehicle, killing four militants on Tuesday.
A security official said the drones fired two missiles into South Waziristan, one of seven districts in the tribal areas. Another official said the missiles fell near Angoor Adda village.
“Two missiles were fired on a vehicle at about 4:15 pm and four militants were killed,” the official told AFP on condition of anonymity. The identity of the militants was not immediately known.
On Monday, hundreds of Taliban rallied in Wana, the main town of South Waziristan, vowing to avenge Bin Laden’s death after US Navy SEALs shot him dead last week in Abbottabad.
