MIRANSHAH: A US drone attack in Pakistan’s northwestern tribal region near the Afghan border killed three people on Wednesday, security officials said.
“The drone fired two missiles on a vehicle. The vehicle was hit in Isha village, about 10 kilometers (six miles) east of Miranshah.
Miranshah is the main town in North Waziristan.
There has been a dramatic increase in US drone strikes in Pakistan since a NATO summit in Chicago ended last month without a deal to end a six-month blockade on NATO supplies crossing into Afghanistan.
It was not immediately known if there were any high-value targets killed in the strike.
