US drone kills three in North Waziristan

01 November, 2011

MIRANSHAH: A US drone strike on Monday killed three terrorists in Pakistan's northwestern tribal region, a hotbed of Taliban insurgents near the Afghan border, officials said.

The drone fired two missiles into a moving vehicle as it drove through a village near Mubarak Shah town about 15 kilometres east of Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan district, Pakistani security officials told AFP.

"Three militants have been killed in the attack," one security official said.

"The vehicle was moving. There are reports that four militants were killed in the strike but we are verifying the death of the fourth militant. We have confirmed the death of three others."

The identities of the dead were not clear.

A similar attack on Sunday killed four terrorists in Datta Khel town about 30 kilometres west of Miranshah.

Under President Barack Obama, the United States has drastically stepped up drone strikes in Pakistan but it refuses to discuss them publicly.

End.
