Peshawar: A US drone strike in the restive
Khyber tribal region of northwest Pakistan killed at least six
Taliban militants on Thursday, officials said.

The drone fired missiles at a vehicle in Spin Darang area
in Khyber tribal agency, they said.

Six Taliban militants were killed in the attack, the
officials said.

Most US drone attacks have focussed on the Waziristan
region bordering Afghanistan and this was one of the few
occasions when the spy planes have hit targets in other parts
of the tribal belt.
