    PESHAWAR: At least three suspected militants were reportedly killed on Wednesday during a US drone strike in Khyber tribal region at the Pak-Afghan border, official sources claimed.

    According to sources, some vehicles of the militants have also been destroyed in the attack.

    Sources further said, US drones targeted a militant’s compound and some vehicles of the militant group in n Khyber tribal region's Nazyan area.

    There were reports of clashes going on between Afghan Taliban and Lashkar e Islam since a long time.

    The last drone attack occurred on December 26, 2013, killing three suspected insurgents.

    Reports in the US media have suggested the drone strikes have been temporarily halted since then to provide the Pakistani government a chance to have talks with Taliban aimed at ending their seven-year insurgency.

    Lazy journalism. The article has conflicting details. How does the reporter know that it was a US drone strike? He is only providing an unnamed source. Notice this:

    "There were reports of clashes going on between Afghan Taliban and Lashkar e Islam since a long time."

    Now why would US want to target some one who is fighting Afghan Taliban?
