Suspected US drone kills 1 in Pakistan

29 November 2013, 11:02

Islamabad - Pakistani intelligence officials say a suspected U.S. drone has killed one alleged militant in the country's northwest tribal region.

The officials said Friday that missiles fired from a suspected drone overnight hit a house in Qazi Kot village in the North Waziristan tribal area. A suspected member of the Punjabi Taliban was killed.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to journalists.

The suspected attack comes at a time of increasing tension between Pakistan and the U.S. over drones. Pakistani officials regularly criticize the attacks as a violation of the country's sovereignty, although the government is known to have supported at least some of the strikes in the past.

The U.S. rarely talks about the covert CIA drone program in Pakistan in public.
