Kurram Agency: 4 security personnel embraced martyrdom in mine blast

Following the blast security forces cordoned off the area and conducted a search operation

Security officials said initial reports showed that the drone fired at least four missiles at a house owned by a local militant commander having links with Haqqani network.

At least five people were killed today when a United States drone targeted a militant hideout on Pakistans border with Afghanistan.

He added that the compound was reduced to rubbles in the attack, killing all four people inside.

A government official, who also spoke on condition of anonymity for not being authorized to speak on sensitive matters, said the compound targeted Monday was very close to the porous border with Afghanistan in mountainous terrain. Identities of the slain people could not be ascertained immediately.
