A US drone aircraft killed at least 45 Pakistani Taliban militants in south Waziristan yesterday when it fired missiles at the funeral of an insurgent commander killed earlier in the day, Pakistani intelligence officials said.

“Three missiles were fired by drones as people were dispersing after offering funeral prayers for Niaz Wali,” one intelligence official said, referring to a Taliban commander who was one of six militants killed in an earlier drone attack.

The army had no information on the attack on the funeral in the remote area under the control of Baitullah Mehsud, the country’s enemy number one, a military official said.

One local security official, who could not be identified as he was not authorised to speak to media, said that more than 60 had died of whom “half are civilians”. Funerals of Taliban are attended by local villagers, not just militants.
