US drone strike kills three Taliban in North Waziristan

By Super Admin

Miranshah (Pakistan), Feb.18 (ANI): Three suspected Taliban were killed by a US drone strike on Wednesday at a compound close to the Afghan border in North Waziristan.

The Daily Times quoted officials and local residents, as saying that the unmanned aircrafts fired two missiles at local resident Sikandar's home in Tabbi Tolkhel, five kilometres east of Miranshah, which is the headquarters of North Waziristan.

According to the paper, the house was being used as a guesthouse for visiting Taliban operating across the border in Afghanistan, another security official said.

It was the second drone attack this month.

The United States has stepped up drone attacks after a "double" al Qaeda agent killed seven CIA employees in a suicide attack in Afghanistan's Khost province on December 30 last year. (ANI)
