Islamabad, July 15 (ANI): At least seven people were killed and over five others injured in a suspected US drone attack in Pakistan's North Waziristan tribal region.

"The three missiles struck the Mada Khel area of the northwest region filled with militants determined to oust Western troops from across the border in Afghanistan," dawn.com quoted intelligence officials as saying.

The intelligence officials, however, preferred anonymity, as they were not permitted to speak to the media on the issue, Dawn reports.

According to statistics, over 900 people have been killed in nearly 200 missile attacks in the troubled northwest tribal areas of Pakistan since 2008. (ANI)
