MIRANSHAH (AFP) A US missile strike Sunday killed six persons in North Waziristan, officials said. The drone attack hit Newey Adda village in the Datta Khel area near Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan tribal district, they said. A US drone fired two missiles. The target was a house used by militants as a compound. Six persons were killed, a senior security official in Peshawar told AFP, on condition of anonymity. Another intelligence official in Miranshah confirmed the attack and the death toll, while a third intelligence official said there were two guests among the dead - a term used for foreign militants. Residents said six bodies had been dug from the rubble. Some injured people were taken to an unknown location for medical treatment. Intelligence officials said there were two Arab fighters among the dead in the latest attack, while they were seeking more information about nationalities of the other militants killed. Last week, a total of 24 persons were killed in four US drone strikes in 24 hours in the same tribal district.
