Six Suspected Militants Killed In Pakistan Drone Strike

A suspected U.S. drone strike has killed what are believed to have been six militants in Pakistan.

Pakistani intelligence officials told RFE/RL's Radio Mashaal that the strike hit a vehicle late on January 28 in a tribal area near the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Officials said some of those killed were suspected Uzbek fighters, although no exact number was given.

It's the fourth suspected U.S. drone strike in Pakistan so far this year.
