Unmanned drone aircraft operated by the US' Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) fired missiles into a target in North Waziristan, killing 10 people including two women and two children. The strike took place in Boya sub-district, some 25 km west of Miranshah, the main city in North Waziristan tribal district. "The drones fired four missiles just before midnight at the house of a tribesman Khyali Dawar," said an intelligence official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. "Six people died, and three were injured," the official said. While two women and two children succumbed to their injuries in the hospital. Initially a Filipino, carrying a local name Ilyas, was said to be the target of the attack, as one Arab and four local militants also died in the attack. It was not clear if Ilyas died in the strike. The US drones flew overhead for hours, hindering the rescue work. Some of the injured are said to be critical. Hospital sources said that the injured include 5 women and five children. There have been several occasions when drones carried out a second strike as people gathered for relief and recovery work at a site of missile attack.
