Drone strike: 4 militants killed in N Waziristan


A US drone strike targeting a vehicle in North Waziristan killed four militants on Tuesday, local security officials said.

The missile attack, the second in two days, took place near Qutub Khel village, five kilometres east of Miranshah, the main town in the restive North Waziristan district.

More than 20 US drone strikes have been reported in Pakistan since May 2, when US elite forces killed al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad.

“Two missiles were fired from a US drone targeting a militant vehicle. So far, four militants were killed,” a security official said.

Another security official in the area confirmed the attack and the toll.

In a strike on Monday two drone missiles killed at least four militants in South Waziristan. The US does not officially confirm predator drone attacks, but its military and the CIA operating in Afghanistan are the only forces that deploy the armed, unmanned aircraft in the region.

@TJ: You want the courts to decide who is a terrorist? Great - start by controlling and establishing the rule of law in FATA and arresting terrorist suspects! But wait, your country refuses to go into the tribal areas, disarm the terrorists and govern the area properly. If you cant police your own country, don't cry about courts and the rule of law when the victims of these terrorists clean up the mess themselves.
