WANA: Nine back-to-back missiles fired by suspected US drone killed 11 people, including one foreigner in North Waziristan tribal region near Afghanistan border on Friday.
According to reports, the missiles first hit a house situated in Mir Ali, in which five people, including a foreign militant, was killed. While one hour after the first attack, unmanned US drones targeted another militants compound in Shaktoi area, killing four more people.
The unmanned US plane targeted Zarniri area, which is near the spot where U.S. missiles are believed to have narrowly missed the Taliban chief Hakimullah Mehsud the day before.
One strike was carried out by multiple drones(five) that usually means a HVT was being hunted.
Supposedly we missed him by " this much" the other day.
