WANA, Aug 30: Four people, including two Canadians of Arab origin, were killed and two other people injured when a missile reportedly fired from Afghanistan hit a house in the Korzai area of South Waziristan on Saturday.

According to local people, a plane was seen flying over the area shortly before the missile hit the house of one Noor Khan Gangikhel near a scout camp in Wana at around 4.30pm.

The injured, who reportedly belong to Punjab, were taken to a local hospital.

AFP adds: A local intelligence official said the owner of the house had recently rented it out to some “foreigners”.
