US drone strike kills seven in Pak's tribal belt near Afghan border
Miranshah, Nov 16 (ANI): Seven people were killed in a US drone attack in Pakistan's North Waziristan region on Monday.
Two missiles were fired at a car in the Ghulam Khan Tehsil, which is located near the Pak-Afghan border in North Waziristan, the Dawn reported.
The vehicle is said to have caught fire following the missile attacks.
A covert US drone campaign in Pakistan has stepped up strikes in the tribal belt, as the United States considers this region to be an al Qaeda headquarters and the most dangerous place on Earth, the paper said.
The leadership of the Haqqani network, which is linked to the Taliban and al Qaeda, is also based in North Waziristan. It has been accused of plotting some of the deadliest attacks on US troops in Afghanistan, including a suicide bombing that killed seven CIA operatives at a US base in Khost last December. (ANI)
