At least five people were killed after six missiles hit a house in Tehsil Spain Wam of North Waziristan on Wednesday.

The strikes by an unmanned US drone occurred after reports that militants were present in the house, official sources said.

US drone strikes are infamous around the world, especially in Pakistan, for killing innocent people besides militants.

However, the United States insists that they are precise and target only terrorists.

Wednesday US drones attack came hours after when Pakistan’s ambassador to Washington has declared these strikes violation of Pakistan s sovereignty and international laws.

While the White House defended drone strikes against al Qaeda suspects as legal, ethical and wise and insisted they complied with US law and the Constitution, even if they targeted Americans.
