Islamabad, Aug.27 (ANI): At least eight people were killed and several others injured in a US drone strike South Waziristan's Kani Goram area on Thursday.

According to sources, three missiles were fired from unmanned Predator aircrafts targeting a house in the region killing eight people on the spot besides injuring many others.

Kani Goram is considered to be a picnic spot and is situated near Ladha, where the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) chief Baitullah Mehsud is said to have been killed in a similar strike earlier this month.

More than 35 missile strikes have killed over 350 people since August 2008, fanning hostility against the United States and the government in Pakistan, where more than 1,700 people have died in extremist bombings in two years. (ANI)
