US assassination drone attacks on Pakistan's northwestern region have killed at least six people, Pakistani officials report.
According to the report, two US assassination drones fired six missiles at a vehicle in Tura Gula village of Azam Warsak area in South Waziristan on Thursday, Xinhua reported.
The US has deployed its terror drones to launch airstrikes inside Pakistan's tribal belt.
Relations between Islamabad and Washington have soured over the unauthorized attacks. Pakistan insists that the airstrikes by the remotely controlled, unmanned aircraft violate its sovereignty.
Washington claims its drone strikes target militants, although casualty figures indicate that the aerial bombings have led to the loss of hundreds of Pakistani civilians.
