PESHAWAR:


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.

Mirza | 10 years ago | Reply @Saad: How many drones were fired upon before when Mush and ISI chief Kayani were in total control? People like you would not stop being military apologist/touts, even if a written agreement is presented showing that the army and Mush sold out the so-called sovereignty of the country for their unconstitutional power. These raids and OBL mission was "in your face" for the army. They better move and find other top terrorists and clean out N. Waziristan otherwise we would do it ourselves. Even OBL's sons and wives admit his killing but Pakistanis are still living in fool's paradise.
