NORTH WAZIRISTAN: Six suspected militants were killed on Sunday in a drone attack in North Waziristan's Datta Khel area, DawnNews reported.

The drone fired two missiles into a vehicle as it drove through a village near Datta Khel town about 30 kilometres west of Miramshah, the main town in North Waziristan district, Pakistani security officials told AFP.

A house was also partly destroyed in Sunday's attack, said the intelligence officials. It was unclear whether any of the six suspected militants who were killed were in the house at the time, or all in the vehicle.
