FACTBOX-Security developments in Pakistan, Feb 24
Feb 24 (Reuters) - Following are security developments in Pakistan at 1430 GMT on Thursday:
MIRANSHAH - Pilotless U.S. drone aircraft fired four missiles, hitting a house and a vehicle, in North Waziristan tribal region on the Afghan border, killing at least four militants, local intelligence officials said.
There was no independent confirmation of the incident as Taliban often deny official account of such incidents and militant strongholds in the lawless tribal belt are out of bound for journalists.
LANDIKOTAL - Five tribal policemen were killed and two wounded in an attack by militants on their checkpost in Khyber tribal region, bordering border.
