A U.S. drone has killed at least 10 suspected militants on Thursday, in the north-west of Pakistan in a second such attack in 24 hours, according to BBC news.

The airstrike targeted a compound in the North Waziristan tribal area, and also damaged a nearby mosque and residences.

The strike comes after four suspected militants were killed yesterday, in a drone strike on a compound near Miranshah, the main town of North Waziristan.

Pakistan has repeatedly expressed its official displeasure with air strikes by U.S. drones and NATO air raids in the north-west of Pakistan. Islamabad closed NATO supply routes to Afghanistan after NATO helicopters attacked a checkpoint in Mohmand, a Pakistani tribal area in the north-west of the country, killing 24 Pakistani soldiers in November 2011.
