DATTA KHEL: A US drone strike killed at least six persons in North Waziristan on Saturday in a US drone strike security officials reported.

According to the reports, the strike occurred in North Waziristan, one of the seven semi-autonomous tribal districts bordering Afghanistan, which is seen as a hub for Al-Qaeda and Taliban militants.

"A US drone fired two missiles at a compound in Mada Khail neighbourhood of Datta Khail area in North Waziristan killing six persons. The death toll is expected to rise," a senior security official requesting anonymity told.

Local intelligence sources have confirmed the incident.

The army has been waging a major offensive against longstanding Taliban and other militant strongholds in the restive tribal areas on the Afghan border for the last six months.
