Peshawar- At least three people were killed and two others injured in a US drone attack in the North Waziristan tribal region, security sources said.

Sources said the drone fired missiles targeting a vehicle in the Loman area of Dattakhel Tehsil. Today's strike is the fifth consecutive drone attack in the last five days, as the US-led drone campaign targets suspected militants and their hideouts in restive North and South Waziristan. After a break of around six months, missile strikes have started again at a time when Pakistan’s armed forces are also carrying out operation Zarb-e-Azb against the militants in North Waziristan agency.
