MIRANSHAH: A US drone strike targeting two vehicles early on Sunday killed at least five peoples rebels in North Waziristan, security officials said.
“US drones fired four missiles on two vehicles in the early hours of Sunday, killing five peoples,” a Pakistani security official told AFP on condition of anonymity.
He said there were up to five drones flying in the area at the time of the attack.
Another security official confirmed the attack and casualties but said the identities of those killed in the strike were not immediately known.
A local intelligence official in Miranshah, however, put the toll in the strike at six.
It was the second missile attack in hours in Shawal district of North Waziristan.
The first strike which targeted a compound had killed at least six peoples in Shuwedar village in Shawal district on Saturday.
