US drones killed six “militants” in an area of Pakistan’s Taliban-controlled tribal agency of North Waziristan that is known to serve as a haven for al Qaeda and the Haqqani Network. The strike is the first in a week, and follows a string of attacks that are believed to have killed two senior terrorist leaders.
The remotely piloted Predators or the more advanced Reapers hit a compound and a vehicle in Degan in North Waziristan, according to Dawn. Four missiles total were reported to have been fired during the attack. Pakistani officials said that six “militants” were killed and two more were wounded.
