Miranshah: At least 21 people have been killed in a US drone strike in North Waziristan Agency of Pakistan, northwestern tribal region bordering Afghanistan, sources said on Friday.

The sources said that the drone fired two missiles on a house in Zoi area of Tehsil Datta Khel, killing 21 people in the attack.

“Fear prevailed in the area as more drones are still flying in the air,” they added.

Drone strikes have become a regular tactic of United States to target North Waziristan, a safe heaven for the militants to launch attacks against US led coalition forces in Afghanistan.

Pakistan’s Parliament had passed a resolution which demanded United State (US) to halt drone strikes inside Pakistani territory as it is violation of International law while the chief justice Peshawar High Court (PHC) had also remarked that the drone strikes issue should be raised at international forum.
