    At least nine suspected Taliban militants were killed Saturday in a US drone attack in Pakistan’s North Waziristan region, which borders on Afghanistan, local media reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The US drones fired two missiles targeting a house which was said to be used as a hideout by the Taliban, the Pakistani Dawn newspaper reported citing unnamed sources.

    In April, the Pakistani Foreign Ministry reiterated its stance on the risks the use of drones poses after two foreign hostages, a US and Italian citizens, were killed in a drone attack in January.
