ISLAMABAD: At least five people were killed in a U.S. drone strike launched in the wee hours of Thursday in Pakistan’s northwest tribal area of South Waziristan, reported local media Dunya.

According to the local media reports, the strike took place at about 0:30 a.m. local time when two of the four U.S. drones flying over the area fired four missiles at a house suspected of being a militant hideout in the Angoor Ada area of South Waziristan bordering Afghanistan.

Details about the identities of the killed are not immediately known.

This is the first U.S. drone strike launched in 2013.

Last year a total of 39 U.S. drone strikes (counted on daily basis) were launched in Pakistan, mostly in its northwest tribal area of North Waziristan, leaving at least 274 killed.
