US drone kills 3 in Pakistan
US drones targeting a militant compound killed at least three people in a restive Pakistani tribal region near the Afghan border yesterday, officials said.
The strike took place in Tabbi village, five kilometres north of Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan which is known as a bastion of Taliban and al-Qaeda-linked militants.
"US drones fired four missiles on a militant compound, killing three rebels," a senior security official told AFP on condition of anonymity.
Another security official confirmed the attack and casualties but said the identity of those killed in the strike was not immediately known.
