Islamabad, Sep 12: A discreet warning by Pakistan Army Chief Gen Kayani to US troops went unheard as US again targetted Islamic terrorists in North Waziristan tribal region on Friday, Sep 12. Twelve people, including women and children, were killed while eight others were injured. The wounded were taken to a hospital in Miranshah.
US fired several missiles at a local house of a tribesman at Tul Khel area in North Waziristan before dawn, witnesses said. Tul Khel is located in mountains about a kilometre from Miranshah, the headquarters of North Waziristan. It was the second such strike in North Waziristan in three days. US drones fired a volley of missiles at a seminary run by senior Taliban leader Jalaluddin Haqqani on September 9, killing 20 people, including three to four top al-Qaeda operatives.
