Six Drone-zapped in North Wazoo
The US launched its second straight drone strike in a remote valley in Pakistan's Taliban-controlled tribal agency of North Waziristan today, killing six "militants."
The remotely piloted Predators or the more advanced Reapers fired a pair of missiles at a compound in the Shawal Valley in North Waziristan, according to AFP. Pakistani officials said six "militants" were killed in the strike while the compound was set afire, burning several of the bodies beyond recognition.
Sounds nice, but eventually someone will 'recognize' them as Mrs. 'bunny and the five kiddies.
No senior al Qaeda, Taliban, or allied jihadist commanders are reported to have been killed in the strike.
Today's strike in Shawal is the second in the valley this week. On June 26, a similar strike on a compound in Shawal killed five militants. So far this year, four of the 25 drone strikes in Pakistan hit targets in the Shawal Valley.
