US Drone Kills Seven Militants In Pakistan



ISLAMABAD – At least seven militants have been killed in two U.S. drone attacks close to the town of Mir Ali in northwestern Pakistan, a region along the Afghan border that is a key stronghold of the Taliban.

According to the news service Paktribune, unmanned aircraft fired three missiles on a compound in the Haider Khel area of Mir Ali in North Waziristan, killing four people, before a second drone fired missiles in the Khaso Khel area, killing three people.

A foreign tactical trainer for al-Qaeda was reportedly among those killed -- although reports differ on his nationality, some intelligence officials saying he was from Somalia, others saying he was from the United Arab Emirates, Reuters reports.

Also among the militants killed were two other foreign fighters, said to be from Uzbekistan, BBC News reveals.

Last week, Taliban commander Mullah Nazir was killed in a drone strike in neighboring South Waziristan.
