Drone strike kills 3 in SWaziristan
 
 
 

Three people were killed in a drone strike in the Sheen Warsak area of South Waziristan on Saturday. The area is located near Wana.
Reports confirmed that a drone had fired missiles at a house in the area, also targeting a vehicle close to it. An earlier drone strike in the Lawa Kanda area of South Waziristan had killed two militants.
There were at least three drone attacks in the Miranshah area of North Waziristan in October. On October 11, 18 insurgents, most reportedly Afghans, were killed in a drone strike in the nearby tribal region of Orakzai in the deadliest attack in more than a year.
On October 24, a US drone fired two missiles at a suspected militant compound in Miranshah, killing three people, security officials had said. Locals had said three cows, apparently meant for sacrifice on Eidul Azha, were also killed in the attack.
Covert US attacks are unpopular in Pakistan. The government slams them as a violation of sovereignty, but American officials believe they are a vital weapon against militants.
