PESHAWAR: At least ten suspected militants were reportedly killed and 14 others were injured on Wednesday during a US drone strike at the Pak-Afghan border, official sources claimed.

According to sources, some vehicles of the militants have also been destroyed in the attack.

Sources further said, US drones fired three missiles on a militant’s compound and on some vehicles of the militant group.

Media persons and journalists, having been barred, have no access to the area and the death-toll could not be independently verified.

Government sources could not ascertain the exact location of the attack.

The last drone attack occurred in the last week of December, 2013, killing three suspected insurgents.

Reports in the US media have suggested the drone strikes had been temporarily halted since then to provide the Pakistani government a chance to have talks with Taliban aimed at ending their seven-year insurgency.
