US drone fires two missiles in northwest Pakistan

While there is a wide spread condemnation of US drones violating Pakistan air space and targetting 'militants' inside Pakistan, there has been a fresh attack in which a US drone fried two missiles  in Pakistan's northwest tribal region tonight.

The missiles were fired in Miranshah, South Waziristan, media reports said. It was also not known whether anyone had been killed in the strikes.

The attack comes at a time when Pakistan and the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf-led government in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa has taken an increasingly anti-drone stance with regular sit-ins being organised to stop NATO supply lines.  

It may be recalled that a November 21 drone strike, which killed six people and injured eight others in the populated area of Hangu, had angered many people.
