US drone kills 7 in Pakistan while New Cabinet of PM Sharif sworn in

Call it a coincidence or anything else, but a US drone strike killed seven in northwest Pakistan, while the new cabinet member of newly elected Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif were sworn in.

The strike came just two days after Sharif was sworn in for a historic third time and asked the United States to end its campaign of drone attacks against militants.

The missiles hit a compound in Shokhel village, more than 100 kilometres southwest of Miranshah, the main town of North Waziristan tribal district which is known as a stronghold of Taliban and al-Qaeda-linked militants.

"The US drone fired two missiles targeting a militant compound and killing at least seven militants", a senior local security official said.
