A US drone strike on Thursday killed eight militants in a Taliban stronghold of Pakistan’s tribal belt, bringing the death toll from such strikes to 12 in two days, Pakistani officials said.
“The drone fired two missiles on a house in Hassokhel town,” 25 kilometres (16 miles) east of Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan, a security official said.
“At least eight militants have died,” a senior military official said in Peshawar, the main city in the northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
