PESHAWAR: US drones killed at least 15 people in two attacks in different areas of South Waziristan, officials sources said on Tuesday.
The first attack took place in the remote Drey Nishtar area of South Waziristan Agency when an unmanned aircraft fired missiles on a vehicle, as a result of which eight people were killed.
Seven more people were killed in a second US drone strike in Shawal area of South Waziristan.
Pakistan has long been publicly opposing the US drone strikes, saying the strikes proved counter-productive in the war on terror.
Relations between both the countries dipped to new low as a US cross border raid killed at least 26 Pakistani soldiers November last years.
Pakistan closed Nato supply routes and got vacated the Shamsi airbase, which experts had been used as a base for dangerous US drones, in the aftermath of the cross border raid.
