PESHAWAR: At least ten people including two senior leaders from the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan were killed in US drone strikes in South Waziristan Agency.

 

The militants killed have been identified as Malang Nazir and Ghulam Khan Nazir.

 

According to reports four missiles were fired at a house in the Barmal area of the agency.

 

Sunday's attack in South Waziristan was the second in as many days and comes amid an upsurge in drone strikes in Pakistan since a NATO conference on Afghanistan in Chicago last month.

 

According to unofficial estimates at least 150 people have been killed during drone attacks in Pakistan this year.
