ISLAMABAD, June 3 (KUNA) -- Six people, suspected of being militants, were killed and several others were wounded in two missile strikes on Sunday in Pakistan's bordering tribal agency of South Waziristan, said officials.
The first strike targeted a gathering of local tribesmen, who were mourning the death of a local Taliban commander killed in Saturday's drone attack in a town, about nine kilometers from Wana, the main city of the tribal agency.
Security officials told KUNA that the strike killed four suspected militants, belong to Maulvi Nazir group of Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and wounded three others.
In the second strike, said officials further, a missile hit a moving vehicle in the same area, killing two militants and wounding three others.
The US continues to fire drones inside Pakistani territory despite repeated protests by Islamabad. (end) amn.gta KUNA 031232 Jun 12NNNN
