WANA: Three persons were killed and two others sustained serious injuries in a US drone attack on a house in Shaheen Warsak village in South Waziristan Agency on Friday, local residents said.


They said the drones fired two missiles and hit the house of a local tribesman, Muhammad Nauroz belonging to Karmazkhel Wazir tribe. Three persons were killed and two others suffered injuries, the sources said.


The villagers recovered the bodies and rescued the injured at a time when the drones were still flying in the area and there was risk of further missile strikes. The villagers said bodies of the slain men were disfigured beyond recognition.


The injured were shifted to a private clinic in Shaheen Warsak town, which is also known as Sheen Warsak. Some reports said the three slain men were foreign fighters, but tribal sources in the area insisted that they were local tribesmen.
