    WANA: Thirty-one persons were killed and others fifteen injured when US drones fired multiple missiles in North and South Waziristan on Tuesday, our sources reported. Among injured, ten are in critical condition.

    According to tribal sources, a US drone fired two missiles at a van in Dattakhel tehsil of North Waziristan Agency while eight missiles on a house that killed twenty-five people and injured ten on Monday. All the injured are in critical condition, sources said.

    Sources said five persons, whose identity could not be ascertained, were heading towards the Pak-Afghan border in the Borvaika area in Dattakhel tehsil around 9:pm when the CIA-operated drone fired missiles at their vehicle. All five were killed on the spot.

    Several media organisations reported that 10 people were killed in the drone attack while reports from the area said only the five people seated in the vehicle were killed in the strike. Government officials confirmed the incident but expressed ignorance about the identity of the slain persons.

    The other attack took place in the border area of Barmal in South Waziristan where a US drone fired two missiles on a vehicle, killing six persons and injuring five others. However, the toll is expected to rise.

    Subsequent reports suggested US drones continued to fly in the area after attacking the vehicle. This delayed rescue efforts after the strike and created fear among people in the area.

    End.

    Wow, Forty plus in the same day and counting. These drones are quite clearly very effective in ridding the world of these terrorists.

    This is next generation war strategy. Make friends with the country that hosts the enemies and then use drones to wipe them out. Low risk and high results. Unfortunately, innocent people are also caught in the crossfire.

    Funny how they always use the word suspected since there is no way to independently verify there claims. The sad part is nearly all of the people killed are innocent civilian's. This attack is just to show the Pakistani army and government of how annoyed the USA is at them for not doing as asked like good slaves, they don't care who they kill the blood of any one who is not from the west there blood is consider cheap or in there terms collateral damage.
    Would you ever even consider something like this happening in any western country no.
