Miranshah, Mar. 22 (ANI): An unmanned US predator attack killed at least eight terrorists in an al Qaeda and Taliban hideout in North Waziristan on Sunday, Pakistani intelligence officials have said.

The identity of killed militants in Inzar village of the North Waziristan is not known.

"The targeted compound belongs to a relative of a Taliban commander. Taliban have not started removing bodies yet," the Daily Times quoted a Pakistani official, as saying.

The US has intensified drone attacks in North Waziristan since the December 2009 massacre of seven CIA agents in a suicide attack in Afghanistan's Khost province.

US officials believe that top Al-Qaeda commander Hussein al-Yemeni, wanted in connection with the bombing of the CIA base in Afghanistan, had been killed in a drone strike in North aziristan's Miranshah city this month. (ANI)
