At least five people were killed when U.S. drones fired two missiles at a house suspected of being a militant hideout in Pakistan's northwest tribal area of North Waziristan on Friday night, reported local media Dunya.
The strike came at about 9:00 p.m. local time when two missiles were fired at a house in the Datta Khel area of North Waziristan, destroying the entire house.
Identities of the killed are not immediately known.
Bordering Afghanistan, North Waziristan is believed to be a haven for militants who often launch cross-border attacks on the U. S.-led NATO forces in Afghanistan.
Despite the repeated protests by the Pakistani side against the U.S. drone strikes in its northwest tribal regions, Washington has insisted that such strikes are effective to wipe out the militants hiding along the Pak-Afghan border.
Pakistan's Foreign Ministry spokesman Moazzam Khan said on Thursday that talks are continuing with the United States on drone attacks in the country's tribal regions to reach some sort of mutually acceptable solution.
"Pakistan has a clear position on drone attacks that these are counter productive, violative of our territorial integrity and against international law," said the Foreign Ministry spokesman.
