US drone kills four militants in Pakistan

A US drone strike today killed four militants in Pakistan’s north-western tribal region, known as a hotbed of Taliban insurgents near the Afghan border.

The drone fired two missiles into a vehicle as it drove through a village near Datta Khel town about 30km west of Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan district, Pakistani security officials said.

“The US drone fired two missiles,” one of the officials told AFP.

“Four militants were killed in the attack,” another said.
