4 Killed in drone attack in South Waziristan tribal region near Afghan border.
Peshawar: At least four people were killed and five others were injured in a US drone strike in South Waziristan tribal region near Afghan border, sources said on Tuesday.
The sources said that the unmanned aircraft targeted a vehicle in Baghar area. The sources said that more casualties were feared in the attack.
The attack came at the time when the Pakistan’s army and the civil leadership are being harshly criticised in the backdrop of US operation in Abbottabad that led to killing of al-Qaeda Chief Osama bin Laden.
The US has been stepping up pressure against the nuclear nation and seeking clearance over the presence of world’s most wanted Qaeda chief within the walking distance from Pakistan Army’s premier Kakul training academy.
Pakistan’s foreign office had adopted the stance that Pakistan had not been informed by the US regarding the operation, adding that when the military came to know about the presence of US troops in the area the US commandos have left the Pakistan’s air space.
