MIRANSHAH: A US drone attack on Monday kiled at least 12 suspected militants in Shawal area of North Waziristan tribal district, Pakistani intelligence officials said.

The targeted compound was in Dray Nashtar village, some 65 kilometres west of Miranshah, known as a hotbed of Taliban militants. Shawal is a remote area of forested ridges and valleys that spreads out on both sides of the border and has long been known as a haven for militants from Pakistan, Afghanistan and beyond.

Local residents said militants cordoned the area around the compound and were taking out bodies and wounded colleagues. "A fire erupted in the compound after some four to six missiles hit it," a local tribesman said, requesting anonymity.

In a drone attack at the start of July, six militants were also killed and an attack on June 4 killed 15 militants, including senior al Qaeda figure Abu Yahya al-Libi.

End.
