This was the 16th drone strike in Pakistan this year. At least 117 people have reportedly been killed in such strikes in 2012.



Islamabad: At least five suspected militants were killed and four others injured just after midnight on Sunday in a US drone strike in Pakistan`s northwest tribal region, media reports said on Monday.
