Spoke too soon…

A CIA signature strike has targeted a Haqqani Network compound in Miranshah, the provincial capital of North Waziristan, killing 17 people. This is the third such attack since Nawaz Sharif took over as Prime Minister of Pakistan.

The latest strike is the biggest drone attack in Pakistan this year. Reports said it targeted a house near Miranshah, the provincial capital, and left a number of other people injured.

In recent months at least two key leaders of the Pakistani Taliban have been killed in US drone strikes. Mullah Nazir was killed in January and Waliur Rehman was killed in May.
