PESHAWAR: A suspected US drone strike near Pak-Afghan border in Nangarhar province on Afghan side has left at least five suspected militants dead, sources said on Monday night.

Highly placed intelligence sources told Dawn.com that the US drone fired four missiles on a compound in Nazyan village of Nangarhar province in the south eastern Afghanistan.

They said that the site of the attack is near the zero-line but in Afghan area.

Identity of the militants killed is yet to be ascertained. There is also no confirmation from the Afghan government or the CIA which allegedly operates drone operations along Pak-Afghan border.
