US drone kills 10 in Pakistan

The attack happened in North Waziristan, an area used by members of the Haqqani network to launch operations against international forces across the border inAfghanistan, according to local intelligence officials.

 

“Two missiles were fired on a compound killing at least 10 in a house believed to be in the use of militants,” said an intelligence official.

Foreign fighters may have been among the dead in thevillageofTappiabout 10 miles from the main town ofMiranshah, he added.

TheUShad long declined to comment on the use of unmanned drones against militant targets inPakistan.

 

The programme is hugely controversial and blamed by Pakistani politicians for turning tribesmen into Jihadis.

 

However, last month Mr. Obama, who won the Nobel Peace Prize shortly after taking office, confirmed that theUSwas using unmanned aircraft in the skies overPakistan.

 

“For the most part, they’ve been very precise precision strikes against al Qaeda and their affiliates, and we’re very careful in terms of how it’s been applied,” he said in a web chat.

 

Mr. Obama’s administration has ramped up the use of drones as ground forces struggle to contain the militant threat inAfghanistan.

Tactics include targeting funeral gatherings and rescuers at the scene of recent attacks, according to research published by the Bureau of Investigative Reporting at the weekend.

 

The strikes were halted in November last year. Relations between the two allies nosedived in the aftermath of a Nato cross-border raid which killed 24 Pakistani troops.

 

However, the drones have since restarted their missions even thoughPakistanhas yet to re-open its roads to Nato supply convoys en route toAfghanistan.
