Feb 24 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.
