US drone attack kills 7 in Pakistan

A US drone aircraft fires three missiles into the troubled northwestern Pakistan, killing at least seven people and injuring several others.

According to Pakistani intelligence officials, the missiles landed in the country's North Waziristan tribal area near the Afghan border on Saturday.
The death toll is expected to rise as some of the injured are reported to be in critical condition, sources said.

Washington claims the raids target militants in Pakistan, but hundreds of civilians have fallen victim to the US drone attacks since 2008.

Islamabad has repeatedly condemned the strikes, saying they threaten the country's sovereignty and fuel public anger.
