MIRANSHAH: A US drone strike targeting a militant compound in North Waziristan killed 15 people in a pre-dawn attack on Monday, security officials said.
Two missiles were fired on the compound in Mir Ali, 25 kilometres (15 miles) east of Miranshah, near the Afghan border.
The attack was the eighth drone strike in Pakistan since a NATO conference on Afghanistan in Chicago last month.
According to the security personnel, there were reports that some foreigners had been killed but these were unable to be confirmed. (AFP)
