Peshawar, Apr 8 (ANI): A US drone aircraft fired two missiles on a vehicle carrying militants in the Daza Ghundi area near South Waziristan on Wednesday, killing four people.

“The drone was flying very low and as soon as militants in a truck opened fired at it, a missile was fired that hit the vehicle,” a foreign news agency quoted a resident, as saying.

The incident is the latest in a string of attacks over the past several weeks, and come on the heels of a meeting between senior US officials and their Pakistani counterparts during which both sides pledged co-operation, Dawn News reported.

Earlier, President Asif Ali Zardari had earlier called for the US to hand intelligence reports and drone technology to the Pakistan Army in order to better enable the country to deal with the terrorist threat. (ANI)
