US drone strike kills four in North Waziristan

Miranshah: At least four people have been killed in a drone strike in Datakhel area of North Waziristan tribal region.

According to sources, the drone hit two missiles at a compound, killing at least four persons all of whom belonged to the Hafiz Gul Bahadur group.

The last drone attack in the region took place on March 22.

North Waziristan region is close to the Pakistan-Afghanistan border and is one of the seven regions in Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata), governed by tribal laws.

Attacks by unmanned US aircraft are deeply unpopular in Pakistan, which says they violate its sovereignty and fan anti-US sentiment, but US officials are said to believe the attacks are too important to give up.
