PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AFP) – A US drone strike on Friday killed three Taliban fighters in Pakistan’s tribal badlands bordering Afghanistan, blowing their vehicle into a ball of flames, local officials said.
It was the first deadly missile strike in a week and comes as Washington appeared to ease pressure on Islamabad demanding action against the Al-Qaeda-linked Haqqani network based in the North Waziristan tribal district.
The militants were killed in Baghar village of neighbouring South Waziristan, where the Pakistan military carried out a sweeping offensive against homegrown militants in late 2009.
