MIRANSHAH: Six people were killed and two were injured in a US drone strike in the Data Khel area of North Waziristan Agency on Sunday.

Sources said the death toll is expected to rise as the building which was targeted was reduced to rubble.

Drone attacks in Pakistan have increased in 2010, despite a strong voice of concern by the Pakistan Foreign Office terming these attacks as ‘counter-productive.’

    Please lets not pretend the Pakistani army is not in approval of these drone strikes. Are you telling me that Pakistani Army can shoot down a super-sonic Fighter jet like a Sukhoi but not a slow moving drone?
    Also, it provides air bases for NATO to fly the drone missions.Recommend

    I think until these people start to act like the people god wants them to act like they’re getting everything they ask for. They pray and want people to think that they pray to god.believe me anyone who would treat a women like they do don’t belong anywhere on this earth.for the one’s that don’t treat women like that and don’t speak out against it are just as bad.Recommend
