Ten killed in US drone strike in North Waziristan Pakistan
April 29--Another drone strike hits Pakistan in North Waziristan near the Afghan border. This would be the second drone strike on Pakistan since Trump took over as US president.
|A militant commander and several intelligence sources reported the raid on Thursday but the attack took place on Wednesday. Abdullah Wazirstani, a spokesperson for the North Waziristan Taliban, which is linked with the Pakistani Taliban (TTP), said the strike killed 3 civilians and seven fighters. A local tribal leader said that he saw two missiles strike a home in the mountains. The home caught fire and he drove away as fast as he could. While US officials have not yet responded to questions about the attack, Kamran Afridi a political agent in North Waziristan denied the location of the attack saying it was not within Pakistani borders. The strike may have been carried out by the CIA as the Pentagon usually confirms its strikes.|
