A US drone strike in South Waziristan on Friday evening killed at least eight people and left two wounded, Express News reported.
Two missiles struck a house in the village of Babar Ghar, a tribal district bordering Afghanistan which is a stronghold of Taliban and al Qaeda-linked militants.
On Wednesday, three militants, including a foreign fighter, were killed when an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) fired missiles on a militant compound in Ghulam Khan tehsil in North Waziristan.
Last month, US drones fired a volley of missiles at militant hideouts in Babar Ghar, killing at least 12 Taliban fighters, security officials said.
