MIRAMSHAH, Jan 3 Five people, three of them Arabs, were killed when a drone fired two missiles on a house in Mosaki village of North Waziristan on Sunday night, official sources said.
According to local people, the unmanned aircraft attacked the residential compound of Jehan Roze in Mosaki village of Mirali tehsil, destroying its guesthouse.
An official said that three Arabs were among the dead, besides Jehan Rozes son Sadiq Noor and grandson Wajid.
Two other persons are said to have been injured. However, names and nationalities of the Arabs could not be ascertained.
Sadiq Noor was a teacher in a government school and he was in contact with foreign militants, officials said. Local people reported seeing four planes hovering over the area when the missiles hit the house.
US drones have carried out two attacks in the area since Friday.
AFP adds “There may have been an important figure hiding in the house,” a security official in Miramshah said.
“Five militants have been killed ... Two are local and three are foreigners. One among the foreigners is an Arab,” the security official said.
