US drone kills three people in Pakistan
At least three people have been killed as a result of a US drone firing two missiles at a house in the North Waziristan tribal region bordering Afghanistan, Press TV reported.
The missiles struck Spalaga near Miranshah in the North Waziristan tribal region killing three people, a Press TV correspondent reported on Wednesday citing local sources.
Pakistani officials claimed that the three were pro-Taliban militants; however, independent sources did not confirm the allegation.
Intelligence officials also claimed that Abu Musa al Misri, a top al-Qaeda leader was among the five people who were killed in a blast in North Waziristan.
The five who were mostly foreign nationals, were killed when a bomb planted in a vehicle that was allegedly to carry out a suicide attack went off in the village of Palga, near the main town of Miranshah.
