Deaths in suspected US drone strike

Pakistani officials say 11 killed in missile strike on Taliban camp near Afghan border.

     

    Pakistani aircraft are also reported to have carried out an attack on two targets in North Waziristan in which up to 11 people are said to have been killed.

    Imran Khan, Al Jazeera's correspondent in Islamabad, said the US military has not responded to the attacks.

    "The US never ever confirms whether they are behind these suspected drone strikes but popularly, it is believed that this is the kind of attack the US has made within this very troubled area of Pakistan before and they area likely to be behind these attacks," he said."

    "Drone strikes are causing much controversy in Pakistan - many people say they have killed a number of innocent civilians and act as more of a recruitment tool for Pakistan Taliban."
