MIRAMSHAH, June 7: Missiles fired by a US drone killed seven suspected militants and injured three others in North Waziristan on Friday, in the first such attack since the swearing-in of Mian Nawaz Sharif as prime minister.

According to local intelligence officials, the drone fired two missiles at a compound in Mangluti area of Shawal sub-division. The identities of those killed in the attack could not be known.

In his first speech in the National Assembly after his election as the prime minister, Mr Sharif called for an end to the drone attacks and said other countries should respect Pakistan’s sovereignty just as they respected theirs.
