28/12/09

At least four people have been killed and several more injured in a suspected US drone attack on a house in Pakistan’s northwest. Pakistani intelligence officials said the missile strike targeted a hideout of anti-government fighters in the Babar Raghazi area of North Waziristan on Saturday. But local security officials told Al Jazeera that those killed in the attack were all civilians. Unmanned drones are often the weapon of choice for the United States as it targets the Taliban and al-Qaeda fighters in remote, rugged areas along Pakistan’s border with Afghanistan. But the US military has rarely confirmed the attacks.
