Drone attack kills 13 in Pakistan
pak-droneAnother strike by a US drone aircraft has killed at least 13 civilians and injured several others in Pakistan’s tribal region.

The incident took place about 20 kilometers west of North Waziristan’s main town Miran Shah on Monday.
Earlier reports stated that five people had been killed in the CIA-operated drone attack.
On Tuesday, the death toll mounted to 13 as the tribesmen found more bodies under the debris of a destroyed compound.
Local residents confirmed that all those killed in the strike were innocent civilians.
Since last year, the US has carried out many such attacks on Pakistan’s tribal areas. Washington claims its airstrikes target militants, but most of the attacks have killed civilians.
