MIRANSHAH: At least four people have been killed while several more were injured by a US drone strike on Sunday in North Waziristan, security officials said.


The attack took place in Datta Khel town, 35 kilometres (22 miles) west of Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan region which borders Afghanistan.


Six US drones flew over the area when one of them fired two missiles at a compound in the Manzarkhel area of the town.


"The drones kept hovering at the compound for a while and then one drone fired two missiles at the time of sunset," a local security official said.


An eyewitness said that the compound caught fire after the strike leaving all the bodies burnt.
