U.S. drone strike in Pakistan kills 10 near Afghan border

Ten suspected militants were killed Wednesday when a U.S. drone fired two missiles at an insurgent hideout in Pakistan's northwest tribal region, three security officials said.

The early morning attack took place 10 kilometers east of Miranshah, the main town of North Waziristan, according to the officials, who asked not to be identified because they were not authorized to speak to the news media on the matter.

The attack Wednesday morning was the fourth U.S. drone strike on Pakistani soil this year, all of them targeting locations in North Waziristan.

    They can use these drones with effectiveness in Pakistan but yet they lose one to Iran.

    Unacceptable! That drone should be fired! It had a quota to kill at a minimum, 16 shieks wearing silk sheets with a single strike!

    Thats probably the one in iran was a messed up dron to start with or it was set up to fail, to start a conflict , a number of reasons it could of gone down. Abenadenajhad or should i say (monkey face) probably has the one hanging from his ceiling in his bedroom.

    India poses a clear and present danger to the regional security of the world. ...to USA...NATO...Pakistan and Afghanistan people and armed forces. Hindu cult extremism is on the rise and fanning all terrorism worldwide. Indians are the bankers to and financing terrorism and supporting Talibans and Al Qaeda and harboring them in India. These terrorists are being entertained in the Indian parliament building in New Delhi where they are residing and then smuggled over to Pakistan in Indian Army helicopters. Shame on these Indians
