10 killed in U.S. drone attack in Pakistan's tribal area

ISLAMABAD, Jan. 23 (Xinhua) -- Ten persons were killed in a U.S. drone attack in Pakistan's tribal region on Friday, private TV channel Geo reported.

The U.S. drone fired two missiles in Wana area of South Waziristan tribal region bordering Afghanistan, said the report.

This is the second missile attack that occurred in Pakistan's tribal area on Friday.

At least eight people were killed and many others injured as a U.S. drone fired three missiles at a house in Pakistan's North Waziristan earlier Friday.

Pakistan's tribal regions have witnessed a string of cross-border missile attacks launched by U.S. drones. The Pakistani government has repeatedly protested against such attacks and called for a halt to them.
