Drone in the sky and people flee their home, that is what is happening in AfPak border.Drone is new terror weapon , who is using it that is different issue. In a very similar kind of attack US drone killed eight pepole in south waziristan.
Missiles fired by a suspected US drone have flattened a house and killed at least eight people in Pakistan, close to the Afghan border, officials say.
The attack took place in Sra Khawra village in the troubled South Waziristan district.
The area is the stronghold of Pakistani Taleban leader Baitullah Mehsud.
There have been three dozen alleged US strikes since August - killing about 340 people - most in the North and South Waziristan tribal regions.
"It was a drone strike on a compound where militants used to stay before crossing the border or after coming back from Afghanistan," news agency AFP quoted a Pakistani security official as saying.
It quoted another official as saying that two missiles were fired at the house, which is around 25km (16 miles) from Wana, South Waziristan's main town, and just a few kilometres from the Afghan border.
