Islamabad, May 13: At least five people were killed Friday when a US drone fired four missiles at a vehicle in northwest Pakistan, Xinhua reported.
The drone hovered over Datta Khel area in North Waziristan for some time and then fired the missiles at a vehicle carrying five people, media reports said.
All five people travelling in the vehicle were killed.
North Waziristan is reportedly a major hideout of the Pakistani Taliban. The US has long been pressurising Pakistan to conduct a military operation in the area to flush out the militants.
