Nine suspected militants were killed in a US drone strike in Waziristan

Nine suspected militants were killed in a US drone strike in North Waziristan on Thursday.
According to initial reports, five missiles were fired at a house in the Razmak area of the tribal region near the Afghan border.
Local sources confirmed that they pulled out nine bodies from the rubble.
The strike comes a day after 16 people, including two fighters of the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), were killed on Wednesday in the deadliest US drone strike in three months.
The CIA operates a covert drone programme which targets suspected militants in countries like Pakistan.
It’s possibly the United States’ worst-kept secret even though it has opened up a debate about the legality of international state-sponsored killing of adversaries.
The United States is essentially deploying aerial robots to wage war along the inaccessible border region between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
The drones conduct intelligence and reconnaissance missions and fire missiles at the enemy.
Drone “pilots” at CIA headquarters in Virginia move joy sticks around as they watch live video feeds of militants entering compounds, moving along winding mountain roads or planting bombs in northwest Pakistan, which President Barack Obama has called “the most dangerous place in the world”.
US officials have described drones as a very effective tool for eliminating high-value enemies in northwest Pakistan, where human intelligence is hard to come by because anyone who provides it risks the wrath of militants.
