MIRANSHAH: US drones fired a salvo of missiles into a compound in Datta Khel area of North Waziristan on Friday, killing ten people.
The attack came just four days after US Special Forces commandos shot dead al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden in the garrison city of Abbottabad.
"A compound and a vehicle were targeted by US drones in the Datta Khel area of North Waziristan killing ten militants," a senior security official said.
"Eight missiles were fired on the targets located close to each other," he said.
Datta Khel lies 35 kilometres (21 miles) west of Miranshah and about 450 kilometres by road from the town where bin Laden was found and killed.
