At least 15 suspected militants killed in US drone attack in South Waziristan

Islamabad, Wed, 14 Mar 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Mar 14 (ANI): At least 15 suspected militants were killed when two unmanned US drones hit them in the South Waziristan Agency, officials have said.


In the first strike, which took place in Uthgalai village of Barmal Tehsil, a drone fired four missiles at a vehicle.


"The target of the attack was fighters of Commander Maulvi Nazir. Eight suspected militants were killed in the attack," The Express Tribune quoted an intelligence official, as saying.


Sources added that two top militant commanders of the Mullah Nazir Group - identified as Ameer Hamza Tojikhel and Shamsullah - were among the dead. Both were believed to be key members of the group. The bodies were shifted to the Angoor Adda area.


Mullah Nazir, who is allied with Hafiz Gul Bahadur, a powerful militant commander in the neighbouring North Waziristan Agency, sends fighters into Afghanistan to attack US and NATO troops. However, like Bahadur, he is considered pro-Pakistan because he does not attack Pakistani troops fighting homegrown insurgents from the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan. (ANI)
