US Predators struck in Pakistan's tribal areas for the fourth time in five days, killing six "militants" in the Taliban stronghold of North Waziristan.
The unmanned CIA-operated Predators, or the more deadly Reapers, fired six missiles at a vehicle and a compound in the Datta Khel area of North Waziristan, according to Xinhua. AFP reported that the vehicle was the primary target and the compound was damaged in the attack.
The identities of the six militants killed were not disclosed. "Armed Taliban arrived at the scene and removed the bodies," Xinhua reported.
Today's strike is the fourth this week. Earlier in the week, the US launched two attacks in South Waziristan and another in North Waziristan.
