A US drone attack has killed at least six people and wounded several others in the troubled tribal areas of northwestern Pakistan, officials say.
According to Pakistani officials, the drone fired three missiles in the Mir Ali area in Waziristan tribal area near the Afghan border on Monday, DPA reported.
The death toll is expected to rise as some of the injured are reported to be in critical condition, sources said.
According to the sources, those killed were “militants.”
So far this year, 300 people have lost their lives in 42 drone attacks in Pakistan’s tribal belt. Washington claims the raids target militants in Pakistan, but hundreds of civilians have fallen victim to the US drone attacks since 2008.
Islamabad has repeatedly condemned the strikes, saying they threaten the country’s sovereignty and fuel public anger.
