WANA: A US drone strike on a compound near South Waziristan town of Azam Warsak killed at least four people.

According to Express 24/7 correspondent, Iftikhar Firdous, a drone fired two missiles at a compound in Azam Warsak, near the South Waziristan town of Wana which killed at least four local Talibans belonging to the Nazir group.

Firdous said that locals had reported sighting drones flying in the area for the past few days, though it was not till today (Tuesday) that it struck.

This is the first drone strike in South Wazirstan since early August, after the Pakistan army completed an operation to drive militants from the tribal area that borders Afghanistan.

We must extend the drone strikes to inner cities. Quetta is bursting with taliban leadership and we must ensure they do not feel safe in pakistan. I am sick and tired of reading comments from so called pakistanis that are in actual fact nothing more then closet talibans. Why dont you people complain when the taliban murder army jawaans. our government is to busy accomadating osama and family so there is nothing wrong in using americans to do the job that we are incapable of doing or unwilling to do
