US drone kills 12 Pakistanis in Pak-Afghan border region

By Super Admin

Islamabad, Mar.13 (ANI): A unmanned US drone has killed at least 12 people in Pakistan's Kurram district near the Afghan border, a local official said.

"Taleban militants have sealed off the area and are retrieving bodies from the rubble," said a security official.

This was the fifth drone attack on Pakistan territory since Barack Obama became US president.Pakistan is critical of the tactic because, it says, civilians are often killed, fuelling support for militants.

The target of the missiles was a training camp run by a local Taleban commander.

The US does not confirm drone attacks but no other countries have the power to deploy such weapons in the region. (ANI)
