MIRANSHAH, (Dawn): A US drone strike in Datakhel area of North Waziristan tribal region killed four people on Sunday.

Political administration sources told Dawn.com that the drone targeted a compound with two missiles killing at least four persons all of whom belonged to the Hafiz Gul Bahadur group operating in the area.

The last drone attack in the region that place on Mar 22.

North Waziristan region is close to the Pakistan-Afghanistan border and is one of the seven regions in Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata), governed by tribal laws.

Attacks by unmanned US aircraft are deeply unpopular in Pakistan, which says they violate its sovereignty and fan anti-US sentiment, but US officials are said to believe the attacks are too important to give up.
