Islamabad: Five people were killed and seven others wounded in a US drone attack in northwest Pakistan Tuesday, Xinhua reported. This was the second drone attack since US commandos killed Osama bin Laden in a covert operation in Pakistan last Monday.
The drone targeted a vehicle in South Waziristan`s main town of Wana. A house was also destroyed. The identities of the victims were not immediately known.
Last Friday, 13 people were killed in another drone attack. At least 180 people were killed in such attacks in the country this year.
