Tuesday, April 27, 2010
Pakistani officials have said that missiles fired from a US drone aircraft killed at least five suspected rebels in the northwest part of the country near the Afghan border yesterday.
"We have got confirmed reports of five dead but the number could be higher," said an anonymous Pakistani intelligence official, as quoted by Reuters. According to another official, rebels had cordoned off the area.
This is the second drone strike made by a US unmanned aerial vehicle in the area within two days; on Saturday, seven people were killed in another such attack.
